4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Probably one of my favorite beers. Pours a deep brown/red color, head dissipates rather quickly. Big malt aroma/flavor with a hint of caramel and a nicely balanced hoppy finish. Very smooth, easily drinkable.

This is part of a beer club. Had only one bottle but was decent for the price. Poured great and had a nice finish. Would do again.

Bottle. Wow. Excellent. Pours a dark brown. Modest head. Nice roasted aroma. Complex palate. Nutty, hoppy. Long delicious finish. Highly recommended.

This beer goes down pretty smooth at 7% ABV. It has a good blend of malt and hops, with a nice finish.

Nice dark brown pour under a thin tan head; medium carbonation, good mellow flavor, sweet but not too sticky. A nice surprise!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
BOTM: This pours surprisingly dark for an ale - a deep rich mahogany. The head is thin and soapy looking with large bubbles. The aroma consists mainly of toffee and malt. This has a surprisingly heavy but smooth body with just a faint touch of carbonation. There is a cerealy aftertaste that is quite pleasant. This is a very good beer for cold nights but not something I would drink on a hot summer day. I WILL be buying this again.

The smell instantly shows the alcohol and doesn’t give the impression of the malt and certainly not the bitterness underneath. It’s a good overall effect, but the aroma definitely isn’t a strong point. A bit unbalanced but the hopping saves the day.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
i really wasn't as impressed with this as i had been lead to believe i would be. it's an okay beer to enjoy once in a while, probably during a rainy november night, but it's nothing that i'll seek out again. nice clear amber pour with a pretty eggshell head that fades fast. the nose is a bit spicy and floral. fairly well balanced with the hops a bit more prominent. thin, with a slightly bitter finish. perfectly adequate but nothing mind blowing.
