3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear orange amber with a thick persistant tan head.Sweet malty aroma with some citric hop notes, caramel. Sweet malty flavour, bitter hops. This could do with a bigger malt base as it feels kind of thin. Maybe some cellar time will help.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very big differance between aroma and flavor. Aroma is a bit "thin", small hints of laqurice and medicine. Flavor is big, lots of fine laqurice, heavy complex bitterness, and long, long, long finish. Oily texture.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Golden amber with small off-white head. Raisins and spices in the somewhat weak aroma. Has distinctive coppery notes in the flavor. Pretty average finish. Maybe this beer shouldent have left the cellar yet! I guess it tastes better in a year or two.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light brown colour. Fluffy off-white head. Lots of alcohol in aroma, along with burnt sugar and marzipan. This is indeed too young in my opinion. Big malty flavour with burnt sugar and a bit rubbery. Light licoricy and tidbitty. The alcohol shows off a bit too much. Smooth, almost silky mouthfeel.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Starts will a small, quickly receeding off-white head. Despite being bottle conditioned, pours clear with a dark amber/red body. The initial quite hoppy aroma is offset by the more malty flavour, with slightly burnt, biscuity notes. Very creamy palate makes it seem more filling and carbonated than it really is. The complexity of the flavours makes this an interesting brew, but some of it gets overshadowed by the creaminess.
