3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750mL bottle BB 3/22/07. It’s supposed to be in the 30s this week... I can drink a Christmas beer :) Poured a translucent lighter ruby with almost nothing going on for head. The nose resonated with lighter, fruity candi sugars.. sweet, but natural.. a bit dried with light spicage and a bit of bread. Sweet syrupy flavors, but not the texture in the mouth.. free-flowing sweetened dried apricots and other fruits, a pinch of cayenne pepper, nutmeg, and mild floral bitterness come together quite nicely with increasing complexity and intrigue culminating in a sweet and spicy long-lived finish. Body became thicker as the drink progressed, and lower carbonation provided an ideal pace across the palate. This was very enjoyable, and almost impossible to beat at $3.99 :)

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from the latest ’06 shipment. Very little pop from the cork, and not much head. Undercarbonated. Dull aroma, vegetably, cabbage, molasses, beets, radish, brown sugar. Tastes pretty good, though comes across quite flat. Supremely easy to drink, as a result, though I’d trade a bit of that for a little more life. Bad comments, for sure, though this was still enjoyable.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rich aroma of dried fruits, rum, and soy sauce. Creamy on the tongue with a lasting flaovr of fruit syrup reduction, roasted malt, and marmite. Yeasty bite with just a touch of resiny hops. Pretty tasty, but the taste buds get quickly overwhelmed to the point that the beer becomes a little one dimensional.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I would readily have again. Excellent with dinner. Palish biere de garde colour, heavenly spicy scent. Easy mouthfeel, understated carbonation and it;s in its prime, nine months before expirey. Slightly candy sweet that works nicely with the spices. Sour notes

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A hazy amber beer with a thin light orange head. The aroma is malty with notes of wood, while the flavor is sweet malty with notes of over ripe fruits and wood. Somewhat boring.
