4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle- poured out a deep mahogany red/brown with a small and short-lived tan head. Aroma was sweet caramel and dates and the taste followed through, with a little brown sugar in the finish. Palate was excellent, smooth and mouth filling. Very good, made my top 20.

Bomber->tulip. Clear amber with big frothy lite tan head. A: dark fruit, sweet malt, raisins; like a Belgian strong ale. T: boozy, with sweet malt and bittersweet overripe fruit; more like a barley wine. Bit messy.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bottle. Pours dark reddish brown with a thin white head that dissipates to nothing. Toffee, caramel, tobacco, moderate bitterness, boozy. I didn't really like this one. Lagunitas has much better offerings.

Well done. Smells like apple bread. Pours red with an off white head. Sweet sticky caramel notes, slightly boozy, with a caramel apple finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aromas of red apple, cherries, caramel, and alcohol. Clear ruby with a mostly lasting, small off-white head. A tad sweet, fruity, a little boozey, and well balanced with a hit of dry bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied, sticky, warming, and finishes with tones of syrupy fruit and mild alcohol.

Sweet fresh caramel apple and sour grape aroma. off white thin head and pure red body. Sweet earthy dry fruit falvors. Sweet and crisp on the palate.

The aroma reminds me of sourdough bread and sun warmed fruit. It has a deep red crystal appearance and pours out with little to no head. The flavor of dry grain and and sundries cherries. With such a dry finish I think the palate takes a hit but not unenjoyable by any stretch.

Bottle. White grape and sour apple aroma, medium body, malty sweet taste with a little apple at the end and dry bready finish is a little weird. But this is a good beer that is easily enjoyable through the full pint which is somehow becoming more rare.
