3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
8.5 ounce bottle, with some age obviously. Pours a hazy brown with not much of head (and there was barely a hiss upon opening). Aroma of toffee, caramel, earth, cardboard, tart and dry fruits, faint hints of booze. The taste is sweet caramel, sunflower seeds, nuts, honey, oats, booze, candied berry like fruit notes, vanilla. Medium-full bodied, low carbonation, fairly hot. Solid beer. Interesting.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Milky amber pour with a white head. The aroma is fairly heavy on the caramel and alcohol, as expected with a beer that is 17%. The flavor is very sweet with a lot of caramel notes and brown sugar. There is also a strong tobacco character with a lot of cigar notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours red/brown with a small effervescent white head that dissipates quickly. Not much on the nose, some malts. Strong arrival of sweet aroma, some bitterness. Some earthy yeast. And the main aroma I can make out is... American beef jerky. An odd beer.
