2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Is this thing corked? Because the bottle lip would make you think it was. Very fruity aroma and slightly chemical. Nice red/amber cloudy pour into a snifter at L’Albatros in Cleveland, with an inch tall off-white head. The flavor was incredibly similar to a Williamsburg Pale Ale. Not my thing.

Pours reddish amber with huge frothy head; aroma of toasted caramel, dried fruits and berries; medium body, foamy carbonation; flavor of toffeish malt and dried fruits; finish is slightly hoppy, hot and spicy.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
fairly rich with a little butterscotch, clean and complex flavor of pear and golden plum with moderate thyme and oregano. I think. Sage. Bog Myrtle??? Oh I dunno, sorta spicy. Very nice beer, am definitely gonna get more...

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very aromatic, floral/hops mainly, but some skunkiness/alcohol at the end. Cloudy amber body with a nice big head. I generally agree with other raters’ comments, nice mouthfeel, but too much bite on the aftertaste.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Subtle blend of caramel, tart cherries, and some spices, this is far too easy to drink. That 8.5% is completely hidden, making it even more dangerous. Not the most intricate beer in the world, but well crafted and extremely enjoyable.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cL bottle. Golden amber color with nice, lasting head. The aroma is incredible with pear and strawberry and a touch of sweetness. The flavor is crisp and the yeast provides a very fresh and dry sensation. There is a slight bitterness in the aftertaste that is an interesting balance to the profile. Similar to a Belgian blonde ale. Great beer.

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2007 D’une odeur forte et d’apparence brumeuse avec une belle robe et dentelle. d’un bonne saveur et sans arrière-goût. Dans son ensemble, elle est une bonne bière forte avec un bon goùt épicé.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Strong alcohol taste that kills any other flavour other than some sweetness. Tastes a bit like a bock beer with some cheap whiskey added to it. Not impressed at all.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smells of pale malt, hint of melanoiden sweetness, nuts, apple. Taste is similar, with the apple showing more. Slight tart crispness on the finish in combo with the intense carbonation cuts through the 8.5% and keeps the palate fresh. Almost champagne like finish.
