3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite - Jersey City, 8/20/11
Aroma: The nose is semi-sweet with some caramel, yeast, wood, and roasted malts
Appearance: Pours a cloudy brownish color, orange hue, a small beige head, and no lace
Flavor: Tastes light-medium sweet up-front, with a roasty/oaky flavor coming through later
Palate: The body is light-medium with a sticky mouthfeel, and a late tingle from the carbonation
Overall, this is a pretty solid Dukel, not an amazing beer, but it has a solid flavor to it. The oak aging works pretty well, and doesn’t overpower everything else. They did a pretty decent job here.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap. Ruby red brown that’s clear with little to no head. Roasty dark malt aroma with toffee. Toffee dominates the flavor too much, but has some slight spice and earthiness. Medium body. Not catching any of the oak, and kinda bland overall.
