2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle pours clear red color with off white head. Aroma has more cardboard to it than malt. Medium mouthfeel. Flavor is pretty flavorless. Has that red malt roasted cardboard flavor, but its not good. A below average beer at best.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Appearance: sort of a cloudy reddish brown with a short tan head. Aroma: dark toasted malts, with a bit of dark fruits and resinous hops. Taste: caramel, toffee, black bread, raisins, bit of cherries, with a zing of piney, herbal hops. Finish: long and pretty bitter, with the resinous, spicy hops lingering. Notes: Seemed pretty average. Not bad, but probably would not drink again.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle… Clear copper ale with mahogany highlights and a large, frothy, off-white head. Fantastic retention. The bouquet is a bounty of candy-like sweetness – toffee, angel food and fruitcake. Full-bodied with a buttery mouthfeel and zippy carbonation. The flavor is surprisingly well-balanced, but offers malty nuances of caramel and mocha. Finishes crisp, mildly sweet and a touch dry.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Light to moderate dark bread and caramel for the malt, moderate pine and herbs for the hops, light dough for the yeast, with date, nutmeg and alcohol in the background. head is average size, frothy, light beige with excellent foamy yet slippery lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is sparkling clear dark red. flavor starts lightly to moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and acidic and faintly bitter. Palate is medium, oily with a livley carbonation. Could’ve been a bit stronger overall, but nice distinct aromas and well rounded flavors make this a a pretty good American Strong Ale to go back to.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark caramel color with a medium sized foamy orange-white head that lingered and left some lacing. The aroma was sweetish, tangy and sour caramel, nut, vague fruits and was a bit vegetal. The flavor was sour caramel and light butterscotch with faint vague fruits, burnt toffee and vegetal malts - almost bock like in character. The finish was long tangy caramel and vegetal malts. Smooth and fairly full bodied. Ok.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. Poured dark reddish amber with a medium-sized off-white head. Glad to see they kept the hops muted. Aroma and flavor are heavy on bready, caramel malt, with some fruity esters that really came out as it warmed. Not overly sweet. Some spicy, resinous hops added balance. Medium mouthfeel. A very nice strong red.
