3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a chestnut brown/reddish color with an off white head. Aroma of caramel, bread, dough, slight dark fruit and alcohol. Taste is the same with a bit more dark fruit coming through. Nice sticky residue on the lips. This is a tasty brew, interesting. Full body to go with the ABV. I really wanted to loooove this beer, but its just kinda blah with a weird astringency. The cost saves it. 9.1% for under $5. NICE!

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a bomber. Thin white head on a clear red / brown ale. Mild aroma of bread and maybe a bit of vanilla. Brown sugar, apricot, and mild spices dominate. Medium body. Taste is sweet throughout before a crisp finish. Not terribly boozy, but 22 oz. and we’ll call it a night.

Good solid strong ale. Alcohol very noticable both in the nose and tounge. Proceed with caution. 4 bucks for a bomber too so hell of a deal for the quality you get.

First off a great leather color. Though there isn’t much nose. A caramel, mild hops, and malt profile.

Poured from a 22. Aroma is boozy (whiskey) and brown sugar. Flavor is bitter and astringent with a definite bite to it. There is some subtle sweetness in the flavor, almost like a bit of a butterscotch.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from bottle into snifter. Amber to brown color with moderate head that dissipated quickly. Pleasant aroma with more hops than I expected. Flavor was solid. Loads of raisin and malt. There were some hops there to balance but not nearly enough. You could find then if you looked for then but the sweetness was overwhelming. By the time I finished u was struggling a bit. Still a good brew and the first sips were excellent, just don't drink it by yourself because it tires very quick

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From bomber to tulip. Smell of burnt caramel, banana and alcohol. Sweet malt as well. Beautiful mahogany with full brown head that remains as wispy clouds across the top. Taste is chewy malt, cherry, moderate alcohol burn and sweetness lingering on the lips. Slight cola and freshly served mini-loaf of bread.
