3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft... Murky burnt-caramel ale with a mid-sized, creamy, off-white head. Great retention. Up front, I can’t pull anything from the aroma, but as it warms I’m picking up all kinds of unidentified fruits - some dark, some tropical and some fuzzy. There are herbal notes too, but I can’t isolate anything. Medium to full-bodied with a whole-milk mouthfeel and zippy carbonation. The Flavor is fruity and tangy with a touch of caramel and enough minerally bitterness to balance things out. Lightly tangy, mildly fruity, bittersweet finish. Nice enough beer, but there’s a lot of mysterious stuff going on here. I blame Mitt Romney. I mean, what do I really know about what went into this beer? Likewise, what do we all really know about Mormons and shady dealings that put Romney in the driver’s seat of the Republican party? This beer was released in the day’s leading up to the RNC in Tampa. Coincidence? I think not!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at the tap room. This beer pours a hazy dark reddish-amber color with a thin bright white head that recedes slowly to a film. Rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of ripe fruit, yeast and malt. Medium body, on the over-carbonated side with flavors of dark fruit, malt and yeast. The finish is fruity with a sweet malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured up on tap at the CCB brewpub with hazy deep ruby body with amber hues and thin off white head. So I’m told this has nothing to do with SeaBass, ok, if you say so. The aroma offers up muted cherries and some coriander like spicy notes. The taste has lots of coriander, prunes, cherries and dark candy sugar. It just comes across as a typical ‘run of the mill’ Belgian like beer. I don’t really get anything wrong with this but I just don’t get the point of this beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Entering old ratings, from notes, poured a dark amber color from CCB, aromas of yeast, dark fruits, maybe figs, some banana, and a touch of malt. Flavors are a hodgepoge of teh aroams, and blended nicely, for such a big abv beer, it was quite enjoyable. Please brew again, solid beer overall.

Dark copper and grey head. Spices, dough, moderate. Sour dried fruit taste. Okay. Dry aftertaste. Not so impressed. Could do with more yeast. Almost too far fermented. Still tasty. (On tap at the brewery)
