3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Poured dark hazy brown color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Heavy sweet malty and small alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a sticky texture. Heavy sweet flavor with a heavy bitter small alcohol finish of long duration. This is a standout beer and may indicate a change in style of brewer or a different brewmaster.

Copper with a small white head. Aroma of sweet caramel with dried fruits, tangerine, vanilla and cinnamon. Sweet fruity and spicy flavour, with a hint of alcohol and a little bitterness. It has old ale qualities, but you’re never in doubt about theAmerican origin.
