3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Blood of Kings has a hugely dank resinous sticky hop bouquet. The taste is surprising with licorice and other dark malt flavors added to the hops though the beer is a deep copper. A mindfuck kind of genre bending beer - try it at least once.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Half liter bottle courtesy of a friend. Thanks Mika! Pours a hazy rust color with a large foamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of wheat, bread, rye, toast, dark fruit. The taste is bread crusts, rye, caramel, spice, faint dried fruits. Medium bodied, dry, moderate carbonation, slight lingering bitterness. Solid.

Pours a murky reddish amber, thin beige head. Aroma is fresh earth, biscuit, caramel, sweet potato, faint stale bland hop. Flavor is malt city, bready, caramel, medium sweet with some murky earthy hop slipping through at the end. Med body. OK

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Binny’s in Chicago.
Pours a dark and murky reddish-brown with a small white ring of head.
Predominately bread in the aroma along with some raisin or plums. The taste is generally wheaty and breadlike. Moderate carbonation. Finishes with a touch of sweetness. It’s okay.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured straight into the glass to kick up some foam and get a good whiff. Indeed bready smell with a bit of plum and herb. Nose carries some alcohol for a "regular strength" beer. Hazy body is more amber than red, under a big, puffy and lacy head.Taste matches the nose, includes a sharp bitterness like sucking on a tea bag. Enjoyable enough in toto, and the extra nose of alcohol also turns the beer into a sticky coating on my lips. But you need to be in the mood for something that’s not what the big boys call "drinkable."

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle. Murky unfiltered orange hued amber-brown. Steady beige head. Really sublime and well done. Smooth and easy drinking, on the lighter side of full bodied. I’m not a fan of amber malt in general, but they do a really job of balancing it out. Toffee, caramel, red wheat, cherrywood. Solid.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rye bread nose. Murky ochre, thick sticky yellow head. Astringent. Pencil shavings, lemon zest, dried leaves on the back end. Light body, soft carbonation, no noticeable alcohol. Refreshing despite its appearance, but not fantastic.
