3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 mL bottle from the brewery. Pours a hazy dark brown color with a thin tan head. Fair head retention. Weak aroma of caramel malts, stone fruits and a bit of chocolate. The taste is caramel, nutty notes, raisin, stone fruits, spice. Medium bodied, low carbonation. The commercial description says I have to be "brave" to try this. Mmm... no. I’m tempted to deduct a point for their pretentiousness, but I’ll refrain. It’s actually a decent beer.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Squat bottle from Frank Smith’s. Pours turbid chestnut with tan head and refermented shrapnel at the bottom. Nose is dark fruit, velvety malt of the scotch and vienna variety to my nose, brown sugar, cherry, fruitcake. Tastes smooth, rich, very complex, with flavors of dark fruit, vienna malt, earthy notes, caramel, cherry, mint, and a complex finish. Yet another great beer from these guys. Like a poor man’s Westy 12.

Bottle thanks to Dan. Pours a cloudy reddish color with a large white head. A big fruity nose with oak and tart cherry. The flavor is mostly dry, tart, cherry and yeast. Some sweeter toffee and caramel. Berries. Quite oaky. Lively palate. Good. Unique.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2014 Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a very dark brown color with a large soapy-creamy tan head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was sweet bread, toffee and plum. The flavor was sweet and tangy raisin, toffee, caramel, brandy, toasty malts and a hint of cream. Long finish of raisin, toffee, brandy and cream. Moderately full bodied. Quite nice.
