3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Denver location. Pour is clear dark crimson with a frothy cream head and good lacing. Caramelly, toffee, roasty, earthy, dark fruity, light cocoa, raisiny, and figgy aroma. Taste is dark fruity, licorice, light alcohol, brown sugar, caramel, and earthy. Slick mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Not bad and it will get you high boost.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Utah Liquor Store. Pours dark brown with an inch of khaki foam. Doesn’t leave any lacing in the glass. Big roasted malt on the nose. Lots of caramel sweetness on the tongue with a hint of sweetness and lots of thickness. Finishes clean. Really nice.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at the World Craft Beer Tasting 2013 in Osaka. Sourish nose with brown sugar backing. Muddy brown. Sugary sweet maltiness, noticeable alcohol warmth. Light bodied, for all that. Kind of disappointing. One dimensional. Sugar and more sugar.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice dark amber color. Aroma is sweet and fruity, with herbal and earthy yeast aromas. Sweet, mixed berry-ish fruit, medium caramel malt flavors. Subtle herbal flavor and spiciness; peppery, allspice maybe? Other than the sweetness, Not much of the malty character I’d expect from the style. Still a good beer, though. (Release #14)

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to thirdeye11 for sharing this bottle. Dark red pour with a white head. The aroma is heavy on the toffee, caramel and cherries. The flavor is similar with some cherries and other dark fruit coming through up front, and some toffee and caramel malt also present. Low to medium alcohol. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Release #10. 8.4 abv. Plums and raisins. Slight roast flavor. Reddish brown. Alcohol is prominent. Maybe too much so. But overall a nice, big beer.
