3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. Pours a murky, deep caramel brown with a big and fluffy off-white head, nice retention and lacing. Nose is malty, orange candy (like Dum Dum suckers), brown sugar, dates. Mouth is big and sticky, malt forward, toffee, vanilla, dried fruit, orange candy again, some slight citrus hoppiness kinda underpinning it all, some booziness on the back end. Tasty stuff, and the first beer I’ve had from these guys.

Bottle. Hazy, medium-brown pour with a light, frothy head. Sweet taste, with citrus notes and a light hop character. A nice mouthfeel and very well balanced.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thought this would be a trippel. It has a dark pour, tons of caramel and dark fruits. Not terrible.

Nice flavors and aroma for a big ale. Tastes a little thin for a 9.7% beer though.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a bomber poured in a snifter. Strong malty aroma. Pours ruddy slightly cloudy dark copper. Flavor is rich malty and sweet. Noticeable alcohol burn, probably a little too pronounced. Very malty and boozy. Good triple, but not a standout.

Brown pour, beige head. Dark toffee, some fruity notes, more hops than I expected and some pumpernickel bread.

Love the style and this is a nice example. Plus the added hops, ABV, and organic. Worth a try!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle cheers to Joel for the PBS tasting. Murky brown pour with a small, sticky khaki head. Nose shows a heap of powdered chocolate and heavy prunes. A touch of smoke comes through giving it a meaty characteristic. Nice. Taste is that smoky, powdery chocolate with some heavy prune and sultana notes. Dark fruits and dry chocolate at the forefront with some underlying brown sugars and vanilla behind it all. Damn balanced and the booze is hidden well giving away only a touch of heat right at the finish. Very good stuff

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle. Clear amber with a foamy beige head. Aroma of toffee, caramel, fruity yeast esters, bread dough and alcohol. Flavor is strong toffee, bitter hops, alcohol warming and light roast. Medium body with a soft mouth feel. Nice beer, the bitterness balances out the malt sweetness.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark toffee colored pour. Small layer of bubbles that don’t hang around. No lacing. Hoppy aroma with some caramel notes. Sweet malty mouth with a slight tannic presence. Nice malty concoction. Good.
