3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lightly hazed, orange copper color. Modest tan head. Sweet fruity aroma, fruit punch like. Sweet start, with mild mandarin orange, candi and dark cherries. The sweetness carries well into the finish and into the linger. Balance is a bit off. 6/14

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from the tap. The appearance is a clear honey brown color with a large thick white head. The aroma is full of caramel and toffee. The taste is very sweet with a hint of the high ABV noted. This is a very good beer.

Bottle thanks to Deyholla! Slightly hazy Amber pour with an off-white head. Pretty sweet, fruity nose. Dark fruit skin. Fig, plum, raisin. Mellow spiciness. Toffee. Similar flavor. Pretty sweet with mild spice on the finish. Caramel-slathered raisin toast. A touch peppery. Oily. A bit hot. OK.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This pours a dark amber color with a foamy, beige head. The aroma is strong with malts and yeast. The taste is big with bready tone, dark fruits mixed with spices, and a little banana. Fairly good tasting considering the lower rating. Worth a try!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle - Rosy amber pour with a thick tan head. Nose is not very pungent--pear juice, canned peaches, and sweet bready malt. Lots of honey. Taste is similar, with honey bread malt, sweet and sticky tropical fruit juice, candi sugar. A bit of grassy hope on the finish. Slick and medium bodied with medium carbonation. Too sweet for my tastes, but in small quantities this could be a pleasant sipper.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2014 Shared 16 oz. bottle poured to snifters, showing a hazed, copper color, with a modest, off white layer of head foam, and wavy lacing. The nose was spice, and fruit with tropical notes as mango, and some pit fruit. Medium+ bodied, the taste was candy-like that thankfully faded some, managed the alcohol quite well, but still remained a little too sweet for me at the finish. Shared another 16 oz. bottle with beer friends, and this time, picked up on additional aroma notes that were floral, and as red licorice. Still a bit too sweet for me.
