4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle: Poured a clear copper color ale with a large off-white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of nice caramelized malt with nice toffee notes and light residual sugar notes. Taste is also dominated by caramelized malt with some toffee notes, light biscuit notes and just the right amount of residual sugar. Body is about average with good carbonation and light warming alcohol. This beer is super well-balanced with just the right amount of complexity and great drinkability.

Bottle, 2012. Pours clear ruby red with a small creamy tan head that slowly dissipates leaving nice lacing. Aroma is a wonderful blend of toffee, vanilla, bourbon, malt, dark fruits. Flavor is medium sweet and medium bitter, lots of barrel, oakiness, vanilla, toffee, dark breads. Full body, creamy mouthfeel. A touch hot and some astringency.

Bottle, shared at a Christmas party. Lovely golden amber, soft off white head. Vanilla, caramelized sugars, perfumey undertones, soft and sticky, full bodied. Just fantastic. On a side note, I traded my other bottle to dresden way back at the end of summer, and judging from the date he rated it, it looks like we consumed our bottles within a week of one another. This beer may have creepy psychic mind-linking powers: extra point.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The color is an opaque light brown color with a medium off-white ring. The aroma blends caramel malts, booze, figs, toffee, and oak. The taste is mildly boozy, mildly sweet, slightly umami, and slightly bitter, and the aftertaste is an almostly cloying caramelly sweetness mixed with booze. The palate fuses an oily texture, soft carbonation, and medium body.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Bert’s
Pours a touch hazy reddish amber color with a decent sized tightly bubbled tan head that shows moderate retention. Aromas of caramel, brown and caramelized sugar with lots of juicy pitted fruit. Vanilla with a hint of woodiness. The flavor is sweet sugary malt with hints of oak and vanilla and a somewhat overly present alcohol heat. Hints of pitted fruits and a light smoked toffee round the flavor out. Thick body light carbonation, sticky syrupy with an alcohol burn. Very flavorful but shows all of the12% abv. could use a bit of time to mellow but I wouldn’t hesitate to pick up another given half a chance.
