3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized tan colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a softly carbonated slightly hazy copper brown colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was mild floral and musty. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a biting hoppy aftertaste. The strong flavor contained notes of hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle. Pours a deep copper with an ample tan head. Aromas of caramel, raisin and clove. Up front sweetness gives way to hoppy finish. Minimal carbonation and lacing. Pleasing overall, but I was laboring by the end of the bottle.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark copper brown with a head the color of caramelized sugar, which really sets the tone for the sweetness of this beer. Malt, figs, vanilla and lots of sweet. Hops show up in the finish.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. from Chuckís. Given an appropriate amount of age this could probably taste much different, but right now itís just too much everything. To much hops, too many bubbles, too aggressive. Smells fantastic; like caramel and burnt toffee.

Thanks Sev for this bottle! Pours a brown colour with a decent beige head. Aroma of prunes, dates, candy sugar, treacle and liquorice. Similar flavours with well balanced alcohol, great bitterness and a chewy mouth-feel. Fantastic!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The beer pours a dark, brick red color with a white head. The aroma is fairly sweet. I get some molasses notes as well as some dark fruit. There is also some sherry, alcohol and caramel malt thrown in. The flavor is full of alcohol and brown sugar, with a little bit of dark fruit (mainly cherries, grapes, dates and raisins). There is also a strong, sweet malt backbone as well as a little bit of resinous pine. A big, flavorful and alcoholic American Barleywine that is fairly easy to drink, but I wish it came in a 12 ounce bottle. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Pours ruby with a large dark beige head. Smells fruity and lightly floral. Taste is dark fruits, floral, and a tiny bit salty. Medium-bodied with smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Eel River Triple Exultation finishes with floral bitterness.
