3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A - Pours an almost clear ruby-mahogany color with a thin finger of frothy brownish head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some lace.
S - Aroma is a mix of sweet dark fruits, raisin, dark candi sugar, Belgian yeast, spice, clove, banana, and some booze.
T - Starts off with some sweet dark fruit with some prune and raisin with some banana and clove flavor. Through the middle some candi sugar with some more dark fruit and some cherries. The finish is a mix of clove, banana, sweet dark fruit, and a touch of booze.
M - Medium-full bodied with moderate-minus carbonation. Smooth with a sweet and lightly warming and yeasty finish.
D - Very drinkable. Surprisingly smooth with a nice super rich malty flavor. The balance is really nice all around.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer pours a thin dark molasses brown in color with a heaping cream colored head. It is very clear and translucent. The beer resembles a dark iced tea after the head dissipates. It smells of banana bread, cloves, toffee, molasses, and has great breadiness. The flavors are very sweet and bready. It’s like banana bread in a glass. If I didn’t see what I was drinking I’d mistake it for a light, light bodied dunkelweizen. The flavors are really nice but it’s a little sweet for my liking. It drinks extremely thin and you can’t detect any alcohol. It’s also extremely thin, especially for the style. It’s a decent beer but nothing special. At $7.99 it was worth it.

4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured into a goblet. Nice amber color, almost transparent. Barely any head though.
The smell... am I back at Delirium Cafe? Strong malt, candy, ripe plum and other fruits. Wow. Knockout here.
Malty taste, sweet in the middle to end, alcohol hidden just below the surface, kept down by mild bitterness. Like drinking candy.
Medium body and low carbonation. It almost gets that sticky texture that this style usually has, but just short.
Smelled amazing. Great beer overall, excellent job

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
From notes. First reviewed 7/12/2011. Served on tap in a goblet at Firkin.
This pours a medium to dark brown with a ruby tint to it. Somewhat transparent, which surprises me for the style and ABV. A small off-white cap rests on top for a minute, before fading away and leaving almost no lace behind.
There are lots of different aromas, especially as it warms. Dark fruits, mostly plums, some clove, green apples, some alcohol, and white grapes. Lots of caramel malt. The aroma is fairly sweet, with no real hop presence.
The flavor starts out quite sweet, and I can tell already that it might be a struggle to finish this glass. The caramel malt is nearly overwhelming, and the plum and raisin fruit flavors exacerbate the situation. Some vague fruity esters in the middle accompany a light general spiciness and some cloves. Interesting - the next flavor to hit my palate is an apple brandy. The beer dries out a bit at the end, leaving behind some green apple and white grape skin as a souvenir. The finish is a little tart as well. The overall combination of flavors kind of throws my palate into shock.
The medium carbonation lends a creaminess to each sip, which creates a smooth sensation overall. The front is juicy with fruit flavors, but the end turns lightly acidic and fairly dry. Fuller than medium bodied.
There is a nice complexity here, which I appreciate, as it signifies the brewer’s effort to make an interesting and unique beer. However, the sweetness up front and the combination of flavors are not that appealing to me overall, so I would not order this again.
