2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
December, 2012. On tap at Engine 15. Light amber pour with a small khaki head. Weird aroma of wood, burning, and caramel really makes this smell like buttered popcorn. Overly sweet flavor again with a weird woody caramel and popcorn aspect. Blech.

Draft at Fermentation. Deep amber pour with a thin white head that laces a bit. Aroma of wood, coconut, vanilla and booze. Flavor is very similar with a touch of spiciness and sugary caramel. Thick sweet body and a quick boozy finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Brewer’s Republic tap house. Poured hazy orange w/ a good sized white fizzy head. Aroma was sweet apple, light woody, and toasty. Flavor was bold: vanilla, caramel, dark fruits, and a strong flavor of Jim Beam, with Sweet initial flavor and a boozy finish, finishes dry. It is an interesting beer, but not one I’d want more than a few ounces of.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I got this on tap. For a high density beer, the alcohol was very understated (which is a good thing to me). I love the oak heaviness, without heavy caramel or coffee tones. Flavorful choice.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours deep reddish brown with a pillow of white head. Big oaky aroma with a bit of vanilla. Taste is all oak, vanilla, and raisins that combines to taste a bit like a grape fruit snack. The alcohol burn doesn’t hit untik its sat in the back of your throat a bit.
