3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2013 Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is medium brown. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted bread/nuts, caramel), lightly to moderately hoppy (grapefruit, apricot), with notes of dried papaya/mango and black tea. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter. Medium to full body, velvety/watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Surprisingly good for this brewery...balanced (in both nose and mouth), flavorful, nicely textured, attractive, etc. Quite nice, although itís certainly more American-styled than British (classified as an English Strong as of this writing).

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pours deep dark amber, almost brown, medium frothy off-white head, attractive lacing, with light carbonation. † Musty, malty, peppery nose. † Smooth hop bitterness up front, some licorice, with a malty backbone. † Some odd hemlock like tree flavor as well, or is it sagebrush? † Medium body and mouthfeel. † Light spices emerge on the finish. † Fairly smooth, not as hopped up as I would have thought. † Finishes herbish, slight hop, minor malt, semi-sweet.   Very different from most other Winter seasonals I have had.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This brown ale poured with a slight tan head, eliciting a malty aroma. The initial flavor is spicy, almost medicine-tasting, with a bitter hoppy finish. A very unique, but slightly unpleasant brew.

On tap at Tapwerks. Pours a clear brown with a touch of amber and a brown head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has earthy grains and light spice with a hint of grassy hops. Flavor is similar with earthy dark grains and light spice but not much of a hop profile.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle into a pint glass. The pour is very dark brown with lots of red when held to the light and a 2-finger khaki head that sticks. The aroma is laid back but shows hints of malt, dark fruits, and pumpkin pie spices. The flavor is sweet up front but finishes quite dry, as perhaps a combination of roasted malts and hop bitterness. Slightly creamy but still medium carbonation.
