3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at ChrisO. Thanks to Kenny.... It pours clear oily gold with pretty much no head. The nose is sweet, sticky, apple, pear, caramel, sugary and some baked goods. The taste is hot, toasty, earth, caramel, oily, honey, apple, pear, over-ripe fruits and boozy with a warming finish. Full body, fine carbonation and oily mouth-feel. A touch better than the du centre versions. Still pretty hot.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. An unclear, orange colored beer with a small, off-white to light beige head. The aroma is rather sugary and alcoholic, with canned peaches, some pine cones and booze. It’s full-bodied and warming on the palate, with a soft carbonation. Booze, white sugar, canned peaches, bitterness and some resiny notes. Lasting finish. Way too warming this one, but there’s some nice things going on here as well. 150328
