3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
I don’t think this is retired. Anyway... clear reddish brown body with a small head. Caramel and sugar all the way with aroma and flavor. I actually liked the regualar version better. This felt too thin and alcholic. 7 of these stupid things left...

A Mes rate:
Pretty decent. Shame they changed it in favour of the new version which is not quite as good. Very red amber colour. Plenty of caramel and brown sugar. Lovely palate. Strong hops in the finish turning more bitter as it goes on. Not bad at all

RBESG05: Old nose, cardboardy, a little woody. Some dark fruits there too. Dark gold in colour. Sweet caramel, fruits and alcohol, but still refreshing.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
11.2oz bottle..... poured into a glass.
Nice spice/wood smell. Very murky light brown beer. Lots of floaties even after a very slow pour. Small lace head.
Yeast spice with mellow fruit abroad.
Alc is almost not there, very well hidden. The warm after taste reassures the 8% abv is there.
Great brew other than the floaties.....
I didnt know it was retired. Had I known that I would have picked up the rest of the 4 pack.
