4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. a clear red beer under a medium sized, frothy, beige head. aroma of sweet caramel malt, lots of juicy red fruits(apples, pears), and maybe even a hint of toast. nailed it...the flavor is a full of the toasty caramel malt blended with lots of refreshing fruit esters and yeast. i keep imagining there is a tiny hint of cinnamon. mostly creamy palate. medium body. i have been very impressed with ABC lately. that re-incarnated laughing skull was awesome too.

A deep red pour with tiny cream head. Roasted scent of malts dominates. This stuff is very tasty and just enough bite. I will get more.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very clear, but very dark ruby. Served with a large faded khaki head. Thick foam holds craters from larger burst bubbles for a while. Crisp hops in the flavor. Some candy caramel flavors but not really a sweet beer. Greay balance of flavors without being bland.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2009 Pours a deep, barely translucent reddish sable with a fairly thick and fine-bubbled light tan head. Aroma is strong, spicy and surprisingly hoppy. Flavor is quite hoppy with strong tones of cloves and cinnamon and a hint of honey sweetness. Texture is sassy, fizzy and lively.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear reddish amber color with a smallish off-white head. Nose is rather malty with caramel notes in there. Taste is much the same, yet has a bit of a bite to it.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Hop City. Pours a deep, dark red with a ring of a white head. The aroma is creamy with gentle hops. Pretty tame and balanced, but tastefully sweet and pleasing. The flavor is also accessible. I find even the 30 ibu’s to be questionable, it’s so malty and smooth. Hints of vanilla, biscuits, licorice, and grass are here. It’s accessible and easy to drink without sacrificing flavor.
