3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2014 Would love to have this on tap some day, had out of a fresh growler, it tasted just a touch oxidised. These MJ beers are getting harder and harder to find. Only 138 of MJ’s Best Beers in the World to have.
Finally had this on tap rerated

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On cask tap at The Henry House in Halifax.
Copper body with good clarity topped by a durable, light tan head.
Sweet and roasted grains with faint hops in the aroma.
The flavor follows. A touch more bitter than sweet.
Smooth, near medium body.
Alcohol more obvious than it should be in both the taste and the feel; especially in the taste.
Some toffee up front and again in the aftertaste.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Right out of the bottle (650ml) lots of wet banana bread batter scents. Dark red tea water with a thick grayish off-white head that looks like frothy latte. Some spicy notes and a bit of cloves with a heavy yeasty base in the aroma. Wet or sweet taste and very fruity even dark raisin flavours. Upfront bold high gravity profile balance and refreshing.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at the brewpub. Dark, clear, coppery-mahogany brown with a nicely retaining off-whtite head. Roasty-toasty nose and flavour, sour red berries and nuts, prunes, somewhat citric. Feels more bitter and strong than it actually is. Crisp. Lemon drop kind of finish. It’s quite nice.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2015 Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a dark caramel color with a small soapy white head that left good lacing. The aroma was tart, bitter, fruity and had touches of honey and toffee. The flavor was tart, bitter, sour caramel, vague fruits and citrus. Medium length finish. Medium body but a bit flat. Meh.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours clear brown with minimal head. Malt aroma, slightly sweet taste. When poured on tap at the Henry House it is served just slightly chilled - the perfect temperature for this beer. It is one of the most gulpable beers I have had. Two tips of the pint glass is all it takes before round two.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
650 mL bottle. Amber brown, but virtually no head. The aroma is mild, with sweet brown sugar and bruised apple. The flavour is fruity-spicy up front, then there are some dark malt notes in the finish. Slight bitterness. body is on the thin side. Not great, unfortunately.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pint on tap at the Henry House. Used to be my old stand-by when Granite had their Barrington Street location; oh how I’ve missed you so. Pours a deep reddish-brown with a sparse head. Aroma and flavours of caramel and dried fruits. Sweet and dry with a warming finish. Better served on a snowy January night rather than during a warmish spring evening, though.
