3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On Tap. Aroma has notes of sweet dried fruits, spices, nice citrus hops, caramel malts and Barely Wine flavors in the background. Nice. Dark amber hue with a small off-white head that fully diminished and left no lace. Flavor is very sweet and medium bitter. Palate is full bodied and oily soft. Overall I was very surprised by this one. Very decent brew.

Draft at Cincy Beerfest. Pours a dark amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma is caramel, floral hops, and herbal notes. The flavor is caramel malts, lightly toasted bread, floral and herbal hops with light hints of fruit. Mild bitterness to the finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ Beer Temple. Brownish red colored. Firm, off white head, good lacing. Aroma’s: caramel, malty, red fruit, bit roast. Flavor is medium sweet, roasted, medium bitter. Body is medium. Finishes somewhat dry, roasted and quite bitter. Didn’t get much of the spices, but (or should I say: and so) I quite liked this.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Brown copper hazy pour with a quickly disappearing white head. Smells like a little malty and caramel, an essence of cotton candy strangely enough. Fairly low carbonation. Subtle flavors of maltiness and caramel, slightly bitter and complex with all the spice additions. Perhaps added more for aroma? Slightly bitter and sweet aftertaste. Not too crazy of an herb/spice beer, mild and good.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This poured a darker amber color with a beigge head. ARoam was somewhat odd spices, some dark fruit, and caramel malt. Flavor was much the same, malty and spicey, but nothing really stands out. Probably my least favorite Dark Horse i’ve had which for them is still not bad at all.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft. Pours a dark red. Smell has some sweetness in the nose with some spice. Taste is for sure full of herbs and spice. Interesting, but a little off the mark for me.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I’m not sure what the herbs were but they seemed to work. If I could have gotten my wife to drink a pint, we might still be having fun. Pours a light amber with a red tint. The flavor had a floral, grassy, earth taste. The beer is very smooth and quite drinkable. I had this on the sidewalk at Hawthornes during Philly Beer Week.
