3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Total Wine in Folsom, CA. Pours deep ruddy copper with a transient yellowish head. Aroma is lightly smoky roasted malt. Full bodied. Flavor is sweet malt with some mild spice. Maybe a touch of smoke. Or not. Thereís a lot of malt - but I donít find burnt or chocolate. More treacle. I think thereís some floral hop, but am not sure. It is very tasty in a heavy malty sort of way. Iím considering whether this is a smoke tinged barley wine thing. Whatever, it tastes good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle: pours a clear deep copper mahogany with a thin-lacing froth of tan head. Has a sweet toasty caramel malty nose with a touch of light fruits and mild peat. Starts with decent fullness and light carbonation with some toasted caramel sweetness and light fruity tartness before a drier earthy finish. Would be better without the tartness, but is still a good attempt at the style.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours clear mahogany with a finger of tan head. Nose is roasty slightly rauchy scotch malt, earthy, hoppy, with some dark fruit and plasticy notes. Tastes rich, with a huge scotch malt bill, oaky notes, dark fruit, and some spirity plasticy hints. Waters out late. Not bad, but not a world beater.
