4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a 1 pint bottle. Strong malty aroma with rich roasted flavours and a hint of hops. It is a beer to be savoured with it’s strong alcohol content and warming flavour.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is a rich malt character with some caramel notes and floral hops. Taste is a rich maltiness with a fruity taste and slight liquor snap on the tip. Well balanced malt and hop finish. Clear dark amber body with a creamy head with good retention.

2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a clear amber color with a white head. Head dissipates quickly andeaves very little lace. Smells of faint malt and booze. Tastes of booze right away then the sweetness of malts hits then finishes with booze. Am disappointed as I expected more from this beer.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
An ok bock, extremely boozy. Pours a beautiful red with a thick tan head. Smells nice overall, a bit of banana, clove, herb and malt. Taste however, is like malt liquor, can't taste anything past malt and alcohol. Had in the bottle.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated on 4-23-2009. This bottled beer pours a small ivory head with a short retention, transparent reddish body, soft, slow rising fizzy carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. The Aroma is malty, citrus hops, and caramel. The Taste is malty, caramel, semi-sweet, alcohol, and some hoppy bitterness. The Palate is tingly and this is a medium bodied beer. Overall, this beer is quaffable; however, I was caught off guard with some hoppiness due to this beer’s style. Interesting take on the style. This is a sipping beer at 10%ABV and worth trying.
