3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from MikeM409. Pours is a light caramel, mostly clear as I could see light through it. Aroma was lacking but the flavor was sweet and boozy, but not overpowering. Drinkable considering the abv, actually was pretty damn good. I expected nothing and liked it a fair amount.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared by the Hoff! Light tan pour no carbonation and not much of a noticeable aroma. Flavor big sweet boozy carmel, slightly spicy and surprisingly balanced considering the high ABV. Really glad I got to try this one!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours medium brown, with a sweet boozy aroma. For being 20% it hides the alcohol very well. Very sweet and fruity that finishes clean.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sooo, finally got to try this one after hunting it down for years. This poured a ruby red color with pretty much no head at all. Aroma made me very weary, smelled liek this one was going to be an insane sugar bomb, but had the smell fo booze, dark fruits, and lots of sweeet caramel. Flaovr was actually better than expected from the aroma. Of course it’s sweet for the high abv, but not nearly as cloying as expected, and booze is hidden pretty well too. Pretty much a novelty beer, but certainly drinkable in small doses.
