3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy medium brown with small off white head. The aroma is uninspiring with some malt, spice, and skunk. Full body with just a little alcohol. Flavor is much better than expected from the aroma. Good balance of sweet brown sugary malt and herbal hops with some spiciness and pleasantly sour finish. Pretty easy to drink too.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at SBWF 2010. Vertical tasting of 2009 and 2006 vintages.
2006 vintage: Unclear amber with no lasting head. Heavy aroas of mainly dried fruits and fudge. Not as sweet as the aroma suggests. Very well-aged and would probably hold up a couple of years more.
2009 vintage: Having had the 2006 vintage before this, it’s very clear this is still too young and has at least a year or two left to become good. Sweet and boozy, lacking complexity and integrity.
Scores for 2009: Ar 7, Ap 4, Ta 6, Pa 3, Ov 12

Dark brown color with medium to low darkish head. The aroma is clearly caramel and raisins. The taste is in line with the aroma. Quite sweet too, completely lacking any bitterness. Not really my kind of beer.

2012 vintage. Nose is almost nothing. Maybe some dried fruit sweetness but very subtle. Taste is lots of dried fruit, sweetness and some booze. Body is perfect for the style. Some nose and this beer would be perect.
