3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A beatiful amber colour with a lasting head. The aroma is dominated by caramel notes, a bit nutty. The taste is not that strong. A bit watery. Hints of fruits and wood but very simple beer.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap-served in Kwak Coachman glass, with timber stand. Small white frothy (mostly dissapating) head. Sparkling clear amber body. Good lacing. Aromas were overall somewhat mild. Molasses, vanilla, and something that I would describe as "German-like". Flavor is sweet through and through. Didn’t notice much as far as hops. Medium bodied. Watery textured. Flat carbonation. A bit too sweet for me...but if you like sweet, this is an awesome brew.

Event: Drinks with the team after work.
Location: Winking Lizard Tavern (Crosswoods) in Columbus, Ohio.
Aroma: Candi sweetness with various fruits, caramelly malt, and a little bit of alcohol.
Appearance: Clear reddish-brown with a diminishing white head, but it does retain a ring around the edge throughout.
Flavor: Malty, light Belgian-like fruitiness, slightly spicy. Moderately sweet overall with a spicy finish. Strong alcohol, but not hot or astringent.
Palate: Medium body, smooth, well carbonated (but not overly so).
Overall: Balanced flavors and very little bitterness. True to style and quite good.
Update on 12/15/2007: Sampled again from a 750 mL bottle shared by my friend Rob. Previous comments and score are still applicable and are more or less the same...

Bottle. Aroma of caramel malts and apples. Pours cloudy, full of sediments. Color is a deep orange-amber with a patchy white head. Very, very sweet caramel taste. Some alcohol in the finish. Palate is smooth but some cloying.

Poured nicely into a custom glass which was a little weird. The glass had its own wooden holder. Great flavor and very well balanced. Nice finish.
