3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle… Murky caramel-colored ale with burnt orange highlights and a small, fizzy, off-white head. The aroma is a rich, hearty swirl of caramel, wood, whiskey and light smoke. Medium to full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and ticklish carbonation. The flavor is sweet, caramely, nutty, lightly woody and bourbony – smooth; no edges. The finish is sweet-brown sugar and mildly warming. Thanks to Cletus for providing the bottle!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2009
I wanted to give this another shot, so I tried it on tap at the Ginger Man. Deep amber-orange beer. Light malty aroma, sweet orange and a soft caramelly decocted sweetness. There is a light vanilla and dried stewed fruit character as well. A bit of honey. Sticky sweetness, but it isn’t cloying, just rich and inviting. Nice chewy malt character with lingering earthy hops and a sweet finish. Some chewy honeyed malts. Pretty solid and much better than the first go-round.
Cask at Manhattan Cask Festival. Amber beer, no head. Aroma is quite sweet, chewy and lightly sweet with a bit of brown sugary sweetness. Orange peel and a bit of black peppery booziness. Fairly fruity character with a bit of earthiness and caramelly sweetness. It tastes more like a pale barleywine than anything else to me. Chewy and sweet and strangely lagerish. It’s a very strange brew.
