The aroma is pretty fruity and it looks nice. I could stand some more hops and some more carbonation, though. Not bad.

Malt and bitter flavoured beer with a slight wheat beer aroma. Good beer which hides its alcohol percentage well.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark copper-amber with a frothy head that disappears quickly. Aroma of sweet malt and dark caramel. Initial sweet flavour gives way to bitter dirt and warm alcohol. The booziness becomes more prominent as the beer warms up. Not entirely unpleasant, but not ass-kicking either.

I’d heard all they hype about this one and it lived up. Quality beer. The Aroma just hits you hard. Slightly Fruity. Nice Smokey Taste, an excellent beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
rich amber color. head disappears swiftly. aroma isrich and malty but there seems to be some sugar there too. the flavor has a touch of alcohol, lots of thick malts, some caramel. definite sugarry sweet flavor in the middle to a thick coating finish. the body is smooth and then on the heavier side. it sticks around in the mouth. after a moment it is a very clean feeling left in the mouth.
