3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Mahogany-red with a huge, nice, creamy and lasting head. The aroma is alluring and spreads upon opening. It has notes of roasted malt, caramel, pine, dark fruits like figs and raisin. The flavour has a light sweetness and notes of roasted malt, caramel, dark fruit, a touch of pine and alcohol and some raisin at the end. The aroma did promise more that the flavour had to offer, but it’s nice, and it probably will age nicely.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle… This beer rocks!… Mostly clear, dirty orange ale with a small, fizzy, khaki head. Decent retention. I absolutely love the aroma of this beer. No one else seems to smell what I smell, so I guess I’m the oddball. I’m really picking up lots of caramel, of course, but also bushels of tannic tree nut shells – mainly pecans and walnuts. Full-bodied with a syrupy mouthfeel and subdued carbonation. The flavor provides gobs of sweet, sugary caramel and toffee and roasted nuts. Sweet, nutty, caramely finish. Thanks to Ibrew2or3 for sharing this world class bottle of beer!
