2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Last of the shipment from Indiana Red.
-sob- Anyway, pours very thin with little head, and drinks a heavy smokey flavor. Thinly spiced and hopped. Not bad!

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
An amber beer with a huge orange head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of hops and hints of roasted malt. The flavor is sweet and very roasted, but also woody and with a dry hoppy finish.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Reddish coloured. Quite fruity and malty. Very sweet flavour. Not a bad beer, just plain boring.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Quite malty. Great beer in the beginning, but the finish is a bit thin and watery. Therefore it lacks complexity, which would make it much better.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Color of dark wood with rich, red highlights. Dense, rich, fruity malt aroma with an underpinning of saturated, roasted caramel. Bubblegummy malt flavor that appears in the aroma as well as it warms. A big hop and deeply roasted component with a dark cherry yeast flavor and an omnipresent celery seed flavor persist. I hate celery. Get an Iron Duke from Wellinton County and compare thses two.

Malty aroma, sweet, some whisky. Brown body, ruby tint, with a nice off-white head. Very malty flavor, some hops. A bit watered out... Thank you flipbrewer for trading me this one!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled: Amber coloured. Light brown head. Sweet, malts and some cocoa in the aroma. Flavour is grassy and hoppy with some cocoa/caramel notes. Is quite bitter in the end. Nice.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Mahogany. A nice, equal combination of malt and hops in the nose providing fragrances of pine, deep rich malts, caramel and dark fruits. Balance continues onward into the flavor. Large, creamy malt flavor with notes of caramel, maple and dark fruit balanced by a cunning bitterness and hop notes of pine and other citrus flavors. I like this stuff.

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2012 Retasted Jan 2008 - 2007 edition. After living away for a couple of years I had some shipped. Not an ale for everyone, more bitter than most would like for a holiday. But since I have no 5’s on my list, I’m going to knock this up a little. Bottle. The 6.7 will warm you up in a hurry. Will be looking forward to trying this ale again.
Mar 2012 still really good. more malty than bitter.
