1.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
12 oz bottle. This was a souvenir from a trip and a dissapointing one at that. I like the hoppy character and the caramel, but its by far not my favorite.

0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Unanimous choice for a drainpour by five tasters at the brewpub in Seattle. Seemed to be flavored by added syrup. Not a nice beer.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from theisti. Poured a big amber-reddish color with a thick body, plenty of carbonation. The aroma was strong caramel and some tea bags. The flavor followed strong full caramel malt body/base with big tea bags, the hops somewhat drowned out by the big maltiness, which was overwhelming and unfortuantely featureed one of my leaste favorite elements in beer: tea bags. Oh well, thanks, Tim, much appreciated!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Astringency is the name of the game here, with too much malt for me and some nice but minimal caramel flavor lingering in there somewhere. Little bit of hop in the flavor too but more in the smell. Wouldn’t be so bad if it weren’t for that metallic tone.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
22oz. bottle. Faint sweet, toasty and nutty malt aroma, some light caramel and faint aspects of fruity, floral, citric hops. Hazy medium red color, head is fine and slight. Flavor is comprised of darkly sweet malts, more caramel and honey, combined with a lightly bitter, citric, herbal hop presence and a light apple fruitiness on the finish. Somewhat thin and watery on the palate, body is medium. Not so big, apparently.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Aroma of toasted malt, some metallic notes. Flavor has some raspberry in addition to the toasted/baked malt. Light bitterness that doesn’t really mesh with the rest. Doesn’t work terribly well for me, but not bad either.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle courtesy of scrizzz. Pours a deep, dark amber with a very small white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of light sweet fruits (raspberry seeds) and sweet malt. Flavor of nice light fruity sweetness (more raspberry and strawberry seeds). Nice, light, and tasty.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark copper colored body with a lightly off white head. The aroma was light grapefruit and caramel. There was also some lightly roasted peanuts. The taste had some rich notes of caramel and a little bit of orange peels. There was also some light tobacco, but it was pleasing. A decent brew that was easy to drink.
