3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Georgeous color; a little sweet in the finish for my taste - the malts overwhelm the hops giving it a cloying sort of finish. Good, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to find it.

Bottled (backlog). Amber colour, small off-white head. Aroma is caramel malts, some grains, a bit of alcohol as well as a slight bit of floral notes. Flavour is caramel, some floral notes as well as some mild alcohol to it. Balanced, but nothing all too special.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Looks good. Pours clear orange/amber, however it does the scent of a poor home brewed ale. And not surprisingly, it has a acetaldehyde after-taste. Hop presence lacking and syrupy malt mouthfeel. Not a particularly tasty strong ale. Would not buy again.

Pours clear orange-amber with a foamy white head. Aroma is lots of caramel, bread, vague soft fruitiness, cracker, and alcohol. Taste is bread, caramel, alcohol, yeast, a bit earthy, and medium bitterness. Medium body, finishes dry. Alcohol is a little harsh, not a lot of complexity.
