3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear amber chestnut pour, off-white head. Lots of sweet malt, brown sugar, rather generic dark fruit flavor, and a bit of toffee and spice. I am finding this quite boring, also I am not a fan of this style.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber->tulip: Pours a large, frothy head atop a dark amber body. Aroma of warm sugar, cookies, and vanilla. Taste starts out metallic, going moderately sweet on the palate with a medium body and rich mouthfeel. I would be really all about this beer, minus the metallic taste that is very prominent with each sip.

On tap at Proof, pours a deep red with a nice tan lacing, sweet cherry aroma, maybe some black currents, delicious. Very full bodied, very sweet, taking very small sips. A bit of roastiness coming on the back end, Iím loving this.

22oz. bottle served in a Blvd. Tank 7 tulip. Poured a clear dark copper with a finger of tan head. Dark fruit and sugar in the aroma with just a hint of spice. Medium bodied. Fairly sweet. Some more dark fruit in the flavor finish of carmelized sugar. Not a lot going on here, could use some yeast spice.
