3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2008 The commercial description is perfect. Charcoal brown w/ champagne size bubbles. Full, semi creamy froth that reduces to a creamy island. Froth is very clingy. Alcohol is well hidden w/ a touch of sweet malt. Hazed, dark honey brown color. Full nectar. Flavors of stonefruit, grapes, melon, tobacco, honey, bitters, clove spice. Finish is bittered w/ a delayed asprin mechanism. Tingles the lips.

Pours a cloudy brown, with nice white head. Pretty sweet, big caramel sweetness, also nutty, malty, but very sweet and tasted damn good.

Part of the mixed six pack, I saved this one for last. Very sweet, rich tasting, and would be great for a dessert beer, which by chance is what I consumed it as. The head and thickness weren’t as pronounced as the commercial desription states.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy brown pours with a tan colored medium head. Aroma is clean and caramelly and very sweet smelling. This beer tastes like candy to me. Very sweet but yet balanced in the end with some well balanced spiciness and bitterness. The alcohol is hardly noticeable due to the high sweetness. Perfect palate: decent carbonation but thick and lasting on the tongue. I was pleasantly surprised by this beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2009 11.2 oz bottle bought in 2001 in SF. It is a slightly hazy orange-brown color wih only a small head. The aroma is pretty strong with a big belgian yeast combined with a huge dark caramel aroma. The flavor has survived quite well, not too much oxidation but we know it tasted a little different at the brewery when we were there in Sept 2000. The alcohol is there still but it has such a nice candi sugar flavor. Delicious beer. Re-rate: Dec 2009: opened the last bottle I have from 2001-not much carbonation left at all but the flavor is pretty intense with raisins, much like a port. Pretty amazing with that much age on it.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Hazy, ruby to dark amber coloured, smaller creamy beige head; sweetmalty, fruity (raisins), vinous (Port) and quite strong alcoholic nose; alcoholic flavour mainly, sweetmalty and fruity, too, creamy mouthfeel; sweet, vinous finish with some bitterness in the aftertaste. Not unpleasant, but a bit too much alcohol......

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I bought this at a ratty liquor store that has zero turnover. This beer has to be at least a year old. Possibly a few. I bought it because it was in this inpenetrable white glass. Needless to say I was scared. It doesn’t smell or taste like it’s spoiled. It doesn’t taste like it’s benefitted from any aging. Overwhelming scent and flavor of alcohol. Pours out opaque light brown with mostly diminishing head. There is a slight oak flavor, and a little belgian yeast. Finish is long lasting alcohol. Quite possible one of the worst BSA’s I’ve ever had. Not sure about my feelings on the shape of the bottle. I definitely couldn’t think a more generic and cheap looking graphics. I think I spent almost $5 on this little bottle. Gayyyy.
