4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap @ TacoMac, John’s Creek. $9.00, 10oz pour. Medium brown-reddish color. Rocky light tan head. Aroma of mixed berry, spruce, and caramelized praline nuts. Flavor has a vanilla, bold malt. Finishes with a pine bitterness. Lots of dark fruits in the finish. Bold hop, sticky malt. Sexy lace left on the glass. Oak aromas come through as it warms.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled 355ml. Bottled 02/24/09. It pours an amber beer with a small head. Sediments floating. Dried mushroom (boletus)- what I sometimes put in my risotto and a lot of caramel in the nose. Sticky spotty lace. Fennel sneaking in. Full bodied, sweet and nutty. Overrated in my opinion.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy amber-brown topped by a thin ring of foam. Toasty, caramel malt aroma with some underlying fruits and grape skins. Sweet malts, raisins, and an earthy hop bitterness. Not bad.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a deep orange, brown haze with a thin soapy white head. Has an aroma of vanilla and dark fruit. Has a taste of licorice and dark fruit. Has a nice malty backbone. Pretty well balanced. Not too sweet. Could probably use a bit more hops, could use some more bitter. Bitter is very subtle. Alcohol comes through. My first stab at an old ale. Has a barleywine feel, but is less sweet and more dry.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
It poured a very thick and hazy dark dirty amber liquid with lots of stuff floating around in it. A very strong ale with a heavy sweetness and intense flavour of caramel, malt, leather, dried fruit, yeast and hops.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz Bottle. Tart leather, heavy malts. Sticky and lightly molasses sweet. Great. Smooth, unassuming but hugely flavorful. Tight, dark ruby pour without much head. Nose is brown suger and some pine. Great fresh hoppiness to this, very upfront. Not too flashy but really solid

Bottle, thanks Rciesla. Brune pour. Well abv is hidden as well as in some other brews, but still can be drank pretty well. Very sweet and rich flavors, vanilla oak, etc. All i know is that it finished me off one night.

Bottle: Poured a hazy reddish/purple color with a small off white head, nose of sweet malt, ripe fruit, and bourbon? Flavor is sweet, rich and malty, some alcohol, with a nice hop finish. Well done.
