3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft pour at the Brouwers Cafe hard liver festival. Rating from my notes. Pours jet black with a foam ring head. Raisin and sweet caramel aroma. Nice, thick creamy body to it. Sugary sweet in flavor. A ton of dark fruit, which was nice. Nicely done.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft pour at Brouwer’s, black pour thin head, strong aroma of aged coffee and coco, this beer reminds me of the b-bomb. Really nice mouth feel, filles with flavor, not a lot of carb. Thin bite at the end coming from the age in the whiskey barrel. Nice beer.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Fremont after their expansion release. From notes. Dark ruby, no head. Syrupy, rich, thick. Aroma of plums, prunes, brown sugar, molasses; rather sweet, vanilla and smoothness. Silky slick syrupy texture; beastie is wrong, this is pretty good (especially if you have a sweet tooth, like me).

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at seattle beer week. Dark brown pour. Aroma of lactic, caramel, roasts, pond. Tastes woody, salted caramel, slight smoke. Sweet palate, slight minerality. Way better than typical barley wine.
