3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Poured an amberish color with a small sized off white head. Earthy, caramel, burnt sugar, and some lighter fruitiness. Pulled this from the back of the fridge, so not sure how old, but has a few years on it. Alcohol content hidden with the body a tad on the thin side.

Bottle. I liked this beer. It was like if a doppelbock and a barleywine had a baby. Poured a crystal clear amber with minimal head. Aroma was overwhelmingly malty. Picked out some gingerbread and burnt sugar aromas in it. Some reviewers have noted this beer being boozy, but mine wasn’t too boozy at all.

Pours clear amber/deep golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel and light oxidization. Taste is medium sweet and light to medium bitter with a long warm caramel finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

Caramel is evident in both taste and aroma. Body is medium to heavy. Also, aroma and taste is very heavy on "alcohol". I don’t know that makes sense or not. Or maybe it does, being an 11.2% ABV beer. Very boozy, (again, if that makes sense).

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Canned, 0.50l. Clear deep amber color with thin off-white head and no lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, alcohol, vanilla and candy sugar. Taste starts with super rich and sweet maltiness, followed by scotch-like and some wooden notes. Mouthfeel is warm and alcoholic, finish is sharp bitter, while aftertaste is spicy. Full body, oily texture and soft carbonation in palate. Superstrong taste, great winter warmer...

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.33l bottle. Clear, deep orange body, off-white head. Aroma of caramel, toast, ripe orange and apple. Taste of caramel, figs and loads of booze. The alcohol flavor is a bit harsh. Medium bodied, sticky sweet mouthfeel. It’s a nice beer, but because of the really obvious booze flavor it’s not outstanding.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reddish orange pour big head clear. Aroma of candied pears, nutmeg, and alcohol. Malt bomb of flavor. Nutmeg there too. Slight dose of hops. Bubblegum yeast aftertaste. Alcohol is quite assertive. Light carb. Medium body. The very strong alcohol helps dry out the mouth.
