2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Deep amber pour. Pretty hazy. Mild off white head and mild lacing. Belgian ale like estery aroma which seems out of place. Dark fruit, spiciness, and mild banana. Pick up a bit of caramel sweetness and breadiness. No nuts in aroma. Flavor starts off with a lot if plum and raisin. That taste mellows out to show some nuttiness and slight hop flavors, but definitely still heavy on yeast flavors. Not what I was expecting.

Bottle - may be past its prime. Pours ruby with thick beige head. Nose is dusty malt syrup, slightly fruity. Flavor is good - mellowed out strong or old ale flavors, still some nuttiness, a bit of slick bitterness near the end. This is really nice as a boozy and nutty ale that is nearly a barley wine, a little hot, but has good complexity #fuqthehaters

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Shared 20 oz. bottle. Pours hazy amber with lasting off-white head. Aroma of sweet malt. Taste is sweet malt, caramel, syrup, bread, and bitter nut extract. Cloying. The sweetness combined with the bitter nut flavor make for a rather unpleasant taste. Medium-bodied. Tough to finish this one.

Aroma: reminiscent of the chestnut ale -- not a good thing; malty and sweet; Appearance: dark red with thin head; a little lacing; Taste: also similar to the chestnut ale unfortunately; lots of malt and caramel along with distinctive nutty taste; not looking forward to finishing the glass; Palate: medium body with long, unpleasant aftertaste; Overall: never again.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
20oz bottle. Not that impressive of an aroma. Oxidized specialty malts, syrupy not extract tone, slightly infected..the aroma is really unenjoyable, approaching vile. Should have saved this one for a tasting, it is not going to be fun drinking 20oz of this. Serious let down after enjoying some Way Beer sours. Shabby, poorly executed, cheapish feel. Not much is working here.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Coloração âmbar, puxada mais pro marrom (SRM=≅26).
Espuma bege clara, perene, de média formação porém pouca duração.
Aroma bem puxado pro caramelo, floral e herbal, com notas de castanha e amêndoas.
Sabor inicialmente doce de caramelo e baunilha, logo mesclado por um amargor assertivo dos maltes torrados. Leves notas amargas dos lúpulos percebidas no final de cada gole. Leve sensação oleaginosa no corpo da cerva, que poderia ser da castanha, amêndoas ou avelã, sendo difícil distingui-las.
Textura aveludada porém não cremosa.
Carbonatação e corpo médio/alto.

Pours a hazy brown with an off-white head and lacing. It has an aroma of toasty malt and some nuts. The flavor is toast and malt up front with a sweet finish over a medium body.
