4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very dark brown pour with lots and lots of foamy white head. Looks fantastic in the Cluss glass I used. Really nice smell, spice and fruit. Very sweet at first but that fades quick and is replaced by a hoppy bitterness that also fades quick and is replaced by malts. A very nice balance actually. I love ales that send you on a journey and this does just that. Lots of depth. Low carbonation. The scent is pleasant enough I want it to fill the room. Very nice.

Brown with a foamy head. Prominent, overwhelming hoppy aroma. Spicy hop flavour and it bites the tongue on the way down. Average beer.

A bottle I picked up at Antenna America & brought to share at the Kyoto Craft Beer Fest. It poured a nice dark brown with a tan head. The aroma was malty sweet & the flavor as well. It’s a very mellow beer, the flavor profile is similar to a barley wine I think.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
651ml bottle. Pours a dark chestnut with a walnut coloured head. Boozy nose with a startling amount of spruce, juniper, light eucalyptus, faint coffee, and caramel. The taste is also up front with resinous hops, light green tea, treacle, dried fruits, and juniper/eucalyptus with some spice in the finish. Wow. I wasn’t expecting much from this one, but it’s really damn good!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a very dark and nearly opaque rusty brown. A medium thickness but long-lasting head with good lather. Aroma is predominantly lady-finger or Graham cookies, alcohol, and prunes. In the mouth it is lighter than expected, with subtle carbonation and excellently balanced bitterness. Coffee and spice finish. More crisp and far less cloying than I would have expected. Very good indeed. Drinks very easily. I’ll finish the 631 ml bottle before I know it....
