2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle… Clear copper ale with a small, creamy, white head. There’s not a whole lot going on, aroma-wise, as I can barely pull anything up from the glass – maybe a bit of caramel, toffee, plum and date. Light to medium-bodied with barbed carbonation. Decently balanced; leans ever so slightly on the sweet side. Finishes crisp and mildly sweet. Bottle courtesy of mgumby10!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle courtesy of Allaboutstout. Pours mahogany with a nice tan head. Smells of roses, soap, some spice, tea, touches of citrus. Tastes of chocolate up front with some nice spicy touches. Some earthy qualities are also present. Mouthfeel is full. Finish yields some raisins and elements of bitterness. Lots of depth in this one.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle from Bigg’s in Hyde Park. Pours a nice clear copper color with an inch-thick white head. Aroma of caramel malts, cinnamon, nutmeg, honey, hops, and floral notes. Flavor was sweet and lightly spiced, with honey, caramel malts, the same spices as above and maybe a little pepper to boot, and gingerbread. Light bodied, and too watery and thin on the palate- could have used some more body. Decent winter brew.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   Bright fiery caramel, thin sudsy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Dull caramel malty nose, low/subtle spices.   A little vegetal on the tongue, otherwise sweet maltiness with some caramel.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Dull vegetal caramel on the finish.   This one was from last year.   A little over the hill me thinks.   Fresh might be more interesting.   Thanks Clint for sharing!
