3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Huge Thanks to Sprinkle and Bobby for this. Man it is a weird but very cool brew. At first I was thrown off by the color being a cider. Pours a beautifu; dark caramel brown with no head. Smell is tart apples and sweet candy. Taste is very much butterscotch with sour apples. At first it does to be too sweet for my taste, but it has a balancing act that follows up as it goes down. Vey refreshing indeed, but couldn’t drink too many due to the sweetness, but overall I liked it very much and would love to have again. WURD. Mulches Odyssey Rocks

Dark cloudy amber with a tiny initial head. Odd aroma of butterscotch with a titch of smoke and overripe apples. Tastes like sickly sweet apples, butterscotch and smoke. Low carbonation for a cider with a full body. Strange cider overall, but I surprisingly like it.

Dark amber color, minimal head. Aroma of apples and cinnamon. Taste is full of robust apple flavors and some spice. Very good mouthfeel. Would definitely do this one again.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled on 8/6/2011. This cider pours a slightly cloudy amber brown color from a 22oz bottle. Very small head. The aroma is apples, fruity and sweet, honey and molasses. A medium bodied cider. Fruity and sweet with some honey and molasses. Nice carbonation. A touch sweet, but finishes a touch on the dry side. Very drinkable. Finishes a little on the dry side, still really sweet but drinkable. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Pours a translucent brown color... darker than expected. A lot of yeast in the bottle of the bottle. A carmel nose with little carbonation. Taste is a molasses/ brown sugar. Looks like clarified freshed-pressed cider.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 ounce bottle - $3.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours out an essentially still, hazed, darkish amber body.
Smell: Gamey notes interspersed amongs various sweet-scented notes of candied apples.
Taste: Fast little snippets of butterscotch, dark caramel, molasses, and honey. Fast but sweet. And, of course, the tartish apples. Sweetish, vaguely savory finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Low carbonation.
Overall: It’s odd, curious, but I think I may like it.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bottle, Black label. Pours deep dark amber color. Ah, the color of cider blended with Organic Molasses. Aroma of butterscotch and apple, oddly enough. Tastes of apple sauce, dark brown sugar, and brown bread. Overall a bit too sweet. This is nothing like the HoneyCrisp cider I tried from Crispin yesterday. Just down a few notches from that. Medium bodied and very sweet.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Savannah, Ga. - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 22 oz bomber. Pours a deep dark orange, very murky and thick - no head. Aroma is fresh and fragrant, overripe apples, a hint of cinnamon. Flavor is full bodied and natural. Golden delicious apples, hot apple pie with cinnamon sprinkled on it is the closest approximation I can come up with. Nice and chewy. Thickish mouthfeel for a cider. Solid cider.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
clouded reddish hue, bready aroma and sugar prevails. Sweet red apple on the palate initially pleases but then it sours and gets confused with a slightly charred flavor. Strange mix of a brew, I had high hopes but was disappointed.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy orange pour with very little head. Very odd aromas of honey, butterscotch, and cleaning chemicals. Flavors of molasses and honey. Very strange - this one didn’t work for me at all.
