3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Single bottle purchase from Famous Liquors. Slight oxidation under cap that goes away after pouring. Pours a big, non-Guinnessy head over a deep brown body. General caramel malt smell with a note of Scottish peat; not a bad surprise. Mouthfeel a bit flaccid and watery at first, then there an aggressive hit of malt. Malts get deeper further down the glass, leading to a slight note of phenol; well, if this is their holiday beer, Iíve found it a bit past its prime.

14.9 ounce can. Pours a clear brown with a tan foamy head that holds throughout the beer. Not a lot of aroma. Roasted malt flavor and sweet. Just enough hops to balance it, but nothing discernible.

A malty sweetness with an underlying bitter aroma come from this clear deep red brew with an offwhite head. The taste is sweet with a slight bitterness and the taste of tin (probably from can). The aftertaste is sweet fading into a dry and bitter typical of this style. It's medium bodied and smooth.

Can @ home, thanks to MacBoost for this one off! Pours an orangish brown appearance with a foamy, brown head. The aroma is creamed corn, lemon, grass, and wood. Twangy lemon flavor. Moderate high sweetness, low bitterness. The flavor is metallic and lemony. Not too good.

Can @ home. Thanks, Boost. Cooper pour with a khaki head. Aroma is big on bread, toast, and grass. Not terribly fragrant. The flavor is just kind of toasty and grainy. Grassy and slightly bitter finish. A decent bit of bready malts. Ok.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not much to love but not much to hate either! Has a lovely mahogany pour w/ a thin tan head that leaves good lacing. The aroma has a nice little holiday spice undertone to it. The flavor is nearly 100% clean w/ a little bit of dryness in the finish. Not bad!
