3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to eg@/?5!s for opening this aged bottle...
Appears an orange toned amber with a tiny, off white head that quickly fades into a mild collar. Splattered spots of lacing are left around the glass.
Smell is of malted grains, citrus, and juicy pomegranate juice.
Taste is of citrus, malt, and cocoa infused pomegranate with berries.
Mouthfeel is light bodied with alcohol in the background, leading to a thin finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 22 ounce bomber. The aroma is strong of berries, fruity, alcohol, melanoidin rich malts. The rich bready malt character is the flavor. The alcohol is strong and warming. Nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark black with a thick caramel head that dies nicely to a small ring. The aroma is thick and sweet, but a little stale. Taste is very overly sweet, balanced with a smoky taste, but not perfectly balanced. Very sugary. Palate is a little watery, but perfect. Could improve greatly with age.

You can definitely smell and taste the alcohol. Beer is very fruity and hoppy. There are hints of caramel and a lot of citrus flavor.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml bomber pours amber in color with a finger of off-white head which leaves little lacing on the glass. Aroma is light roasted malts with some caramel and pomegranate and an earthy hoppy bitterness with hints of citrus. Taste is light roasted malt bitterness with some caramel and light chocolate malt sweetness and the pomegranate juice and a moderate earthy and light citrus bitterness in the finish. An interesting beer that was quite tasty.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle shared by 618Brews- thanks, Kid! He said this was still sitting on shelves locally at Friar Tuck. Pours a cloudy orange color, murkier in the middle and brighter yellow on the sides, with a small white head. Aroma of pomegranate, caramel and sweet malts, honey, wine-like alcohol, and wood. Flavor is boozy up front, with sweet malts, honey, sugar, tropical fruits, and pomegranate juice last. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, boozy mouthfeel. Just a bit too alcoholic for me.

22oz bottle. Pours a clear deep orange amber color with a large off white head. The aroma is slightly toasted caramel, citrus, and some fruitiness. Tastes of pomegranate juice, caramel, berries, hints of citrus, some chocolate, and fruity. The alcohol remains well hidden throughout. This is definitely on the sweet side.

Thanks to the same stranger that gave me some Founders Cobain at DLD. Copper pour with an offf-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, hops, light fruit. Taste had a nice balance of all the flavors and hops. Some bitterness at the end. Tasty all the same.
