3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Interesting - it’s like a barley wine w/out the hops. Very boozy but remarkably drinkable at 9%. Rustic orange w/ no head. Not very complex but some reason it kind of works for me!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Eulogy. Hazy red pour. What head there was disappeared entirely before I could notice. Mix of sweet juicy red fruit and bitter hops. Cherries. Plums. Pepper. Pomegranite. Light brown sugar. Definite sharp edge to this red fruit brew.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the brewpub. Pours murky copper with minimal white. The aroma is a caramel and citrus bomb and really comes out in the snifter. The taste is full of caramel and is very malty but is not boozy at all. A little syrupy.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Blue Dog in Chalfont, PA. Couldn't resist a brew labelled "very rare" on the beer list. Unfortunately, this beer was far too syrupy and unbalanced for me to enjoy.
