3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle - 12 oz) Dark copper pour with a thick off-white head. Big hop and peppery aroma with some dry citrus. Flavor is really hoppy and bitey but also smokey somehow. Shockingly mild finish with an earthy hoppy aftertaste.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cascazilla is one of my favorite red ales, therefore I imagined I’d love this. I was wrong. It’s a malt bomb with muddled hops and unneeded booziness. Mediocre.

Bottle. Poured a reddish brown color. Aroma of caramel, malt syrup, floral citrus hop, cherries. Medium bitterness. Some roast malts. Sugars. Syrup malts. Good balance and a bitter finish. Heavy bodied. A big beer. Interesting.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at Moriartys. Appeared to be an opaque black pour at first but showed to be a dark clear rusted brown under bright light. Foamy off-white head that left a lot of lace. Strong blunt cigars and dark fruit. Bitter brandied plums. Earthy hops. Truffles. Birch. Varnish. Liquid raisins. Peppers. Liquorice. Band-Aid. Medium-full body. Big ladting spicy fonish. Flavors are a bit harsh but in good balance. Not subtle but pleasantly abrasive.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours out a slightly cloudy reddish-brown color with a thin off white to tan head. Aroma is caramel, toffee, toasted malts, light citrus hop notes. Taste is lots of rich caramel, toffee, almost a root-beer flavor, syrup, mild citrus bitterness, some floral notes and a light sticky alcohol warmth on the finish. this one was eh....

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is a crazy beer. It has an intense smokiness that overwhelms any significant hop flavor. Hard to drink a lot of it but a lot of fun to try.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is one odd duck. Looks dark red/amber, very English. Nose is pink grapefruit. Nice. Taste is caramel malt, pine, a bit of booze, some barley-wine-is feel, not my favorite but very interesting, and a bit over the top.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle shared by Jack. Pours a murky, poop water brown with a thin sudsy off white head. Nose is lightly fruity, some cereal malt, granny smith apples, caramel. Flavor is all sorts of weird—lightly smokey and goaty, toffee malts, ugh.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Cloudy reddish color with a small tan head. huge, wet, hop aroma. Some caramel sweetness in the background. first taste is a real mix of flavors to sort out. Hops, sweetness. Bit of a burn in the finish offset by the touch of sweetness and hops.
