2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2013 Bottle: bronze color body with a haze throughout; khaki colored head settles nicely to a thin layer of foam. Aroma is very sweet & malty with lots of caramel, raisins, & lightly vinous grape. Mild alcohol character. Taste is sweet as well, lots of caramel & toffee malt, boozy raisins, lightly sweet & nearly tart with a more bitter, date & prune skin finish. Overall, a little too sweet for my tastes, not a huge fan of the enormous raisin flavors, either... Needs more balance.

There is a bountiful of smells that make up the aroma. There is a complex combination of molasses, raisin, caramel, and yeast. It’s deep amber in color with a tan head. There is a pleasant combination of raisin and malt with a wee bit of bitterness as it goes down.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a redish brown with an off-white head that settles to a thing white cap on the beer. Decent lacing on glass. Beer warms your palate and has a great mouth feel to it. Having a hard time nailing down exactly what I’m tasting with this one. Dark fruits, malts, a bit of brown sugar, a little hoppy bitterness. I really just want to sit back and enjoy this one. The is my first time having this beer so a review on a second tasting would probably be more productive.
