5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Pours a dense mahogany honey color w/ full creamy froth. Froth reduces to a thick spattered canopy. Aromas of malt and rock candy. Full nectar w/ mellow residual effers that render a silky mouth feel. Massive caramel malts perform nicely w/ a moderate hop profile balancing it to the finish. Flavors of caramel, maple, cherries, and a slight hard candy essesnce. The candy performs as a modertor between the thick malt and asprin hops balancing this brew into infinity. Finishes w/ sweet asprin. Overall: for as big a brew this is, it’s quite blanced. Highly recommended. Connoisseurs Choice !

My brother-in-law and I split one of these on tap at the brewery, 4/13/06. Wow. Dark red with a nice firm head. Strong bourbon aroma. Very smooth and strong -- but it’s got everything a big beer could ask for. Superb.

Bottle. Pours dark copper with a small beige head and FULL OF SEDIMENT! Any unfilterd beer in my book is worth drinking for that reason alone. This beer gives you all kinds of reasons to drink it. Nice aroma of sweet malted barley and hops. Thick and creamy palate. Flavor starts out malty with a sweet middle and a hop finish. This a realy fine ale!

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
Caramel apple aroma, somewhat overripe with strawberry undercurrents. Cloudy copper, medium yellow head, some lacing. Very strong and pronounced flavor of strawberries and apples. Alcohol noticeable. Bitter apple core finish. Bears no resemblance to Left Hand’s Sawtooth. Decidedly unique and very good. Maybe I’m being too generous, but this was a treat.

Slightly larger than medium body is lightly carbonated, has a touch of warming and finishes oak-resiny dry.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nose of vanilla, flowers, and typical hops spice. The brew pours cloudy woody brown with yeasty beasties. The average off-white head is creamy, mostly lasting and leaves no lace. The brew has a strong bitter presence just the way I like it, with a fruity middle. The full body is dry and soft.
