Bottle shared at the Foothills Sexual Chocolate pre-release party. Aroma has plum notes with a butterscotch backbone. Flavor has plenty of butterscotch sweetness while actually being a bit dry. Some cherry skins add a nice touch.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rich and pronounced molasses nose, horehound accents. Clear chestnut colored, thin yellow head. Medium body, smooth, very sweet. Syrupy sweet horehound and maraschino cherry flavor. A little cloying, but it almost works. Alcohol is downplayed considerably. I can hardly believe it is 11%.Pretty neat.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear deep amber/ruby color with a medium tan head. Aroma is fruity with notable yeastiness...just a bit aggressive. Flavor has lots of fruit...fig, raisin, a hint of apple...some sugary sweetness and some underlying leathery notes...boozy. mouthfeel is medium/heavy with a malty, warming finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle: Pours a clear deep amber with a stringy-lacing off-white head. Has a sweet toasty dark caramel malty nose with some dark fruity esters and a touch of brown sugar. Starts with good fullness and rich sweet caramel and biscuity malty complexity with some bready yeasty notes and mild clove spice with the slightest hint of light fruity tartness before a slightly thinner and warming finish. Pretty true to style and drinkable given the abv.

Serving:draft at Fireworks. Pours a deep cloudy gold. The nose is light with a bit plastic and malt. The flavor is weak with some honey, yeast and a slight sweetness. This one isn’t very impressive.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz bottle. Deep, clear honey brown with a creamy off-white head. Nose is toffee, dried orange peel and golden raisin. Medium to full body with a soft buzz. Taste like the aroma, almost more a barleywine or strong ale. Brown sugar, pomegranate, dates, bitter peach pit then tea and yeast. Better too sweet than burnt.
