3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (650ml). Shared with mds and tupalev, my bottle via trade with TURDFERGUSON. Poured fairly deep coppery orange, average head. Sweet aroma, vanilla, root beer, spice, sweet malt, a bit of perfumey hops - a little artificial but pleasing. Even more vanilla in the taste, a little mild bitterness in the finish - average body, a little still, a hint of astringency - nice, softly spicy.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear ruby body topped by a very small white head. Syrupy body with sweet cherries swimming in a brown-sugar cake. Herbal notes adds to an otherwise rather simple sweet beer. While drinking it I knew my taste buds were in familiar territories but I just couldn’t put my finger on it. Then a friend came to the rescue. Dr Pepper. Yes, that’s it. Overall I wasn’t too found of this Dr Pepper flavoured-beer although I actually like Dr Pepper. I also like milk but…

Draft at Trappeze Pub with Linh, Scarlett and Dad. Pours a light amber body with light lacing. Aroma is full of spice and sweet malt, and nothing else really. Mouthfeel is medium to light, somewhat dull with not a lot of flavor jumping out. Some muted hop character in the back, covered by lots of spice, malt, bread and toast

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 5, 2013 Rerate Must have gotten an old bottle last time. More pronounced nutty aroma this time around Original 3.3 Savannah, Ga - Habersham Beverages - big ass litre pop-top bottle. Murky dark orangeish-copper colored pour with a light slightly off-white head. Fresh lake water aroma, some faint overripe fruitiness - expected more. Some Christmas spices show up initially with a hint of licorice. Some candy-like notes make their presence known as well - some vanilla, and root beer. Mouthfeel is thick enough but not a highlight. Would make a decent winter warmer. Interesting to say the least.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(1L swing top bottle thanks to ballewblake) Pours a dark chocolate brown with decent head and good lacing. Nose is caramel, sweet corn, and chocolate. Taste is mildly sweet chocolate, finishes with more delicious chocolate, a nice hop balance, creamy and overall very good. A nice surprise.

Bottle. This was a shocker. I loved this dark mahogany beer. Loads of winter spices of cinnamon, clove, pepper, and some of that winter warmer caramel and chocolate notes. Solid beer, i’ve had it twice both were noteworthy. A gingerbread man in a glass. Solid.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Courtesy of Styles. Aroma of caramel, vanilla. roasted nuts, fruit, and light spices. Pours a dark transparent copper with a small soapy head that quickly fades to a ring. Quick nuttiness and caramel up front is quickly covered up by a vanilla, milk chocolate, butterscotch, and slight ginger finish. Pretty tastey, but probably couldn’t drink more than 12oz or so without it wearing on me.
