4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
October 2010. Bottle. Poured red brown with a tan head. aromas of spice, dark fruit, yeast. Flavors are malty and spicy. Carbonation is just right and the finish long and acidic. Near perfect beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
P: Hazy dark brown tea colored body with a fluffy micro bubble khaki lead. Minimal lacing.
S: Decadent Belgian candy malt, apples, raspberries, blackberries, plums, toasted caramel and spiced rum.
T/M: Sweet, syrupy, aggressive booze up front. Taste follows the decadent nose and finishes with warming cherry NyQuil. Also scorched grain, bitter apple peel, cinnamon, cayenne pepper and faint tart white grapes in a vivacious body.
O: A solid offering from North Coast. Great flavors but I gotta say at first the booze was very heavy. Other than that it was really enjoyable. Cheers!

This brew is pretty cool! Especially in bomber form! It has a smooth caramel smell. Not too bad on the taste front. You can sense the dense flavor, a thick was down. But still does not disappoint. This more a winter, or early spring brew. But it wouldn’t be bad on a breezy summer night. I say go check this one out!

Tap at Stagshead. Pours ruby with a fruity and lightly spiced nose. Tastes of hi-c, figs, caramel, Belgian spices, malt, cough syrup, and alcohol. Warming booze on finish but not sticky and quite drinkable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a bigass bottle, San Diego. Nice, slightly creamy head, deep amber-brown color with lively carbonation. Strong aroma of yeast, acidity, and malts. The alcohol is very apparent in the sip, but the creaminess of the beer protects your palate from the offensiveness of the alcohol and you are left with a nice warmth. This is a very rich and stunning beer, tremendously flavorful. Sweet, sour, and utterly gangster. Hell yeah!

Strong malty presence in aroma and taste. Smooth finish. Was served too cold at a bar, couldnt appreciate the full beer until it warmed.
