2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, light brown, mostly diminishing.
Body is dark brown.
Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel, nuts, bread), with notes of vanilla and brown sugar.
Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly bitter.
Finish is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately bitter.
Full body, syrupy/watery texture, soft carbonation, moderately alcoholic.
Well, itís not a bad start that could be quite nice with some fixes and more depth, but as-is itís a really simplistic sketch of a beer. Really syrupy sweet and caramel-heavy.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bomber. Been pretty happy with dry dock so far, so curious about this one. Pours a very dark brown with red hue, and half finger of beige, bubbly head. Aroma is sweet and lightly roasted, caramel, molasses, toasted nuts. Medium to full bodied with some heat on the finish. Flavor is sweet toasted nuts, with a lingering sweet finish. Didnít live up to my expectations, but not a bad beer.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap @ Rackhouse. Deep red brown appearance with a small, tan head. Very sweet malty, caramel, brown sugar, light toffee nose. Fairly thick, syrupy, dark candy sugar, thick caramel, toasty malty flavor. A little but of bitterness on the finish but overall just too sweet for my taste.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
10% version on tap at The Rackhouse on 9/3/11. Clear whiskey nutty burnt orange, with a small beige head. Aroma of chewy cereal malts and light peat. Taste was incredibly deceptive for a 10er. Tasted no more than 6%. Chewy dark malts, cereal grains, light yeastiness thatís earthy but sweet...hard to decipher. Not shabby, but a little plain and lacking nuance for such a nigh percent beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Rackhouse - pours a deep purple - fizzy, with a minimal head - fairly sweet, almost sticky, with notes of plum, raisin and toffee up front - sweetness lingers through the middle as a very mild peaty earthiness develops - a little bit of vegetal character in the mix - finishes a little spicy, with lingering earth - no noticeable alcohol - a couple of flaws, but not bad.

On-tap sasonal at the brewpub. Smoke and chocolate in aromas. Dark brown colour. Cloying, not so drinkable because of coffee mixed with sugar and burnt parts. Overall, way too sweet and they describe it so.
