3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. A very clear mahogeny color w/ a little off-white head. Aroma is a ton of malt! Some earthy spices as well, quite nice actually. Definitely some warmth in the mouth. This is a malt bomb as advertised. Caramel, warm spices, heavy, wet rye, some fruit sweetness - both dark and lighter fruits. Hardly any hops to balance all this malt. An okay brew, but nothing great, Iíd have to say. Too sweet. Not the freshest bottle either.

Bottle. Copper color, off-white head. Slightly oaky aroma. Smooth, full flavor with juicy malts and pretty good balance for the ABV. Full body, medium carbonation. This is reminiscent of Fullerís Vintage Ales. Nice!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
clear chestnut color, off whit half finger of head. Good strips of lacing.
nose is caramel, nuts, and malt. very rich nose.
taste is pretty much in line with the nose. exception being some good balance with citrus from the hops. Adds a bit of a wooded character to the beer. Nice.
Medium feel and carbonation. Just a slight bit heavy. Nice beer though
