1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottled 2003, drank 2011, stored at 50F for four years, then 40F for four years: Pours a clear orange with a small bubbled small white head, aroma has wood and scotch, starts and ends sweet with a scotch ending, subtle carbonation, full bodied with a sticky mouthfeel. Mellows out and becomes more drinkable as it warms up. This is just gross, if you like pouring a shot of Lagavulin in your beer, you may like this.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Orange and the only one of the four with a head (off-white). Strong alcohol present in the aroma. Seems rather flat and I can’t get past the alcohol. Actually smells like flamaldihide or whatever that stuff is you preserve rats for disection in. Tastes like flamaldihide. Aweful taste I feel like I am drinking the fluid they preserved rats in before they got disected. Drain pour.

1.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
So I was not sure how I would like this and it just bombed. Aroma is decent. Whiskey is prominent with a dry wine background. Appearance apple juice colored with a thin lacing but then has suspended particles in it. I think its the yeast but not sure. Flavor is pure alcohol of the whiskey. Palate is alcohol. I can’t drink this because the alcohol really comes out.

1.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 1/20
Vinegar, whiskey, date, and toffee nose. Cloudy ochre, full of chunks, no head. Cloying, and whiskey-like. There is probably a lot going on, but I don’t have the patience or the will to see it through. This beer is too unenjoyable to continue. It does have a nice creamed leather finish. Sickeningly sweet and gross.
