3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Comes out of the bottle a clear dark sepia with a fairly thick and persistent light tan head. Malty aroma has a strong overtone of caramel and apple, and is fairly sweet. Robust flavor has strong fruity and caramel notes plus a surprising hoppy tone and a subtle undertone of malt. Caramel sweetness nicely balances the hoppy bitterness. Firm, smooth, slightly syrupy texture leaves a sweet, fruity, hoppy finish and a persistent tingle. Geoff Dale, you’ve got my vote in 2016! ;)

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
The aroma is hoppy with pine and sweet caramel malt. The appearance is amber with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average. Overall a nice beer but nothing about it stands out.

22oz bottle in a Trappist glass. Pours brown/ruby with a lacy, cream-colored head. Aroma of caramel malts, some dough and toffee and oats, plus a good amount of floral and citrusy hops. Flavor about the same with hints of alcohol. Average to smooth texture. A pretty interesting beer.

Bomber. Pours a murky dark dirty brown with a nice frothy ivory head. Aroma of pine and citrus hops and sweet malts. Taste is of sweet caramel and bread malts and pine hops. Loads of citrus rinds. Nice sweet backbone. Very balanced. A bit boozy upfront. Really warms you up quickly. Full-bodied. Light carbonation. Sticky on the palate. Very good beer.
