4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Have had this a few dozen times but yet to rate it, always the go to at Cane Rosso as it comes in a larger glass that at other establishments. It is rather strong and you know it as the alcohol is not hidden like he does with the Wintervention. Smells great, pours a beautiful dark red. Love it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap - lightly hazy dark copper - full-bodied with a fairly round and creamy texture in the mouth - flavor is initially sweet, with notes of brown sugar, toffee, a touch of raisin - a fairly strong bitterness arrives late, along with woody hop flavors (cedar, pine) - finish is a little hot, but otherwise a decent offering.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
really flavorful. Carmel flavored slighly. Hint of chocholate, not overwhelming at all. Kinda like a perfect amount to make it not taste stouty.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Oak St. Pub in Denton TX
Review from notes:
A - Dark reddish brown with ruby hues on the edges, hazy with a small sudsy cap. Good lacing.
S - Strong caramel malt, tangy dark fruit, earthy hops, pine mostly.
T - Follows the nose with dark caramel malt, fruity alcohol, the fruit is generic and hard to pick out, earthy rugged flavors, pine/herbal hops. Finishes semi-dry with some alcohol and pine.
M - Medium full body, medium carbonation, alcohol shows up a bit, sweet semi-dry finish.
A malty strong ale the has enough hops to balance it out. Plenty of alcohol showing but works well with all components. Glad I had a chance to try this.
Serving type: on-tap

Tap at LUCK. Pours a clear ruby color with a nice white head. Aroma is sweet, big caramel and more sweet notes. Flavor is dry, sweet with a big tingle over the palate. Dry finish.

This beer amazes me every time. Great aroma hops. Great bittering and off set by great malty sweetness. I consider this a great alternative to arrogant bastard.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear dark amber with a thin beige head. The aroma is a bit thin but contains a bit of boozy crystal malt and piney hop resin. The taste is nice and strong though, with big heavy earthy caratoffee sweetness, a strong booze ester, and a bitter leafy pine resin that really comes out on the finish.

On tap at a bar in Dallas, but I can’t remember the name of the bar. Pretty good, creamy. Definitely feels heavy, you can feel the relatively high ABV. Nice beer.
