2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
22oz bottle, shared at b3shine’s with local raters. Purchased from Party Town. Mostly hazy darker orange amber color. Thin white head. Couple dots of lace. Medium body. Smooth, crisp lighter carbonation. More dry finish. I really don’t like the aroma. It has that distinct old malty hop caramel soapy aroma that I don’t care for at all. Moderate bitter, light to moderate sweet taste. At first, the flavor is pretty offensive, but once I get over the initial shock it grows on me a little, not horrible to drink. Some nice, robust chocolatey maltiness. Not my style, though.

Bottle shared at b3shine’s. Pours a hazy copper with almost no head. Aroma is biscuit and saltines. Tastes dull and uninteresting. Past it’s prime I would say.

Pours a murky amber with a huge off white head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, hops, and roasted malt. Taste of the same with more caramel and slight alcohol. This medium to full bodied brew is well balanced and goes down smooth.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Hazy copper color wth an orange hue and a scattering of off-white foam. Aroma is heavy and dense malt with toasted grain and darker raisin and barley style notes. Taste is dominated by sweet malt with light oxidization and heavier raisin, caramel, and darker fruit flavors. Some lingering hop bitterness but it’s almost hidden under all the heavy malt. Makes me think of an Englsh barley wine. Even, coating mouthfeel. Nice sipper.
