Bomber. Red brown and hazy with a frothy tan head. Sticky lacing. Some appealing over ripe fruit in the aroma with yeast and bread. Alcohol is tasted early and brings quick warming. Fruit is complex and fairly big in the flavor. Dark, passion, and peaches. I taste occasional roasted notes and yeast. This is a softer version of many barley wines. Quite tasty.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel Florentin. Thanks eyes_wide_shut and YK23. Clear deep reddish amber. Aroma of somewhat stale hops, a bit piney and resinous and quite a bit of caramelly malt. Flavor of stale hops, caramel, and a bitter finish, a bit spicy. Medium to full-bodied. Past its prime.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy, haze amber/brown with sediment and a lasting 1 inch dirty head. Just an immaculate appearance. Aroma is strong and balanced between bitter hoppiness and malti sweetness. Flavor is 60/40 hop/malt balance... aromatic and bittersweet. Palate is good but a little sedimentary, so might throw you off. The aftertaste is a little sweet and has an oatmeal character. A great beer albeit strange brew.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured clear dark brown color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy citrus & toasted malt aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations were exceeded.

An interesting combination of two beers I have never had before. Didn't taste like a red ale but had good flavor.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a rich mahogany with a nose of bready apple and grapefruit orange mixed with pine. Flavor is butt-bread and raw nuts. Average mouthfeel. I’ll vote for someone else.
