2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
22 oz. bottle at the brewery. Finally I can find a decent strong beer in this state. Pours a clear light brown-very light for the claimed style. 2-3 finger head that persists. OK flavor of malt but not much in the way of boos. lacking the good citrusy hop notes I get from the best instyle like Bell’s Uranus Lagunitas Night Time. OK beer. pretty good for Utah standards but that’s not saying much.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very roasty, this is thick and hoppy. The alcohol is a bit too prevalent, but otherwise this is a decent brew.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy deep brown with a medium off white creamy head. Aroma of sweet candy orange, pine, toasted malt, caramel and floral notes. Flavor of toasted malt, very earthy, grapefruit, pine, nuts and loads of hop bitterness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, shared with Parksy and phantomhennes. Dark brown, amber highlights. Brown bread, caramel, earthy/piney hops, moderate bitterness. Not much roast here, yet very malt driven. I enjoyed it, but I love malty American strong ales; I could see why some hopheads may be disappointed.

Herbal, citrus fruity hops and sweet, caramel, chocolate malt aroma and flavor. Some raisin-like flavor, and a little harsh alcohol. Firm bitterness. Finishes sweet.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. This is all foam, a foam that never quits. Perhaps I got a flawed bottle. There’s a chalky, roasted aroma. The flavor is vaguely coffee-tinged, but comes with a riding funk that doesn’t belong. A bit watery in the end, too. (#5962, 4/18/2015)

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
651 ml. bottle. Pours a thick, well retained, tiny bubbled, light beige head, with slight lacing, over a cloudy particle laden, brown (SRM 30) body.....nose is pine, resin, citrus notes from the hops, cocoa, chocolate from the roasted malts, no esters, balanced.....taste is chocolate, cocoa, hints tobacco, pine, resin, grapefruit notes, slightly sweet throughout......mouth feel, medium body, sticky, alcohol warmth present, mild astringency, carbonation adds slight tingle, and slight creaminess. This is a reasonable representative of the style, nicely balanced, complex and quite drinkable. BJCP 8/3/15/4/7

Pours murky coffee black with fair size head and a bit of sediment. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel. Taste of coffee, slightly hoppy, dark chocolate. Tasty.
