2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottles from Caponeís. Pours clear deep copper toward ruby with 1-finger splotchy off-white head. Nose is caramel malt, strawberry/band-aid, hops. Heavy nose. Tastes of caramel malt, pretty light on the palate and not very complex, with pretty big hops, some fruit, definite strawberry, cherry, some vanilla, and a finish that gets hot late.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour is a dark brown with a huge tan head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt with some brown sugar and molasses. Flavor is chewy sweet molasses malt with a bit of dark fruit. Very heavy and filling. Finish is sugary and sweet with more caramel malts. Hides the 10.2% well. Not as complex as some barley wines but itís going in the right direction.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy reddish copper with a thin orange/tan head that dissipates quickly. Nose is of caramel and cherries. Very creamy and full bodied on the palate. The taste is sweet caramel, light brown sugar, honey with some nuttiness. No detectable hops. The 10% ABV is evident as it warns the innards and soothes the soul. Well done, Steven Point.! A fine companion to a winterís fire with good company.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a 12 oz bottle. Dark amber color and syrupy appearance. Not a very strong malt flavor, like I would anticipate. Boozy finish with a sticky aftertaste.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Twist off. Red hue, nice tan head. Smell is caramel, raisins, dark fruits, slight booze. Flavor is thinner, more hops, earthy, brownie, leather, toffee, less fruitiness. Honestly it isnít that bad. Needs a boost in mouthfeel.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark amber, cloudy. Almost no head. Aroma is dried fruit (plums?) and molasses. More lively than Iíd expect given the lack of head. Warm finish. Velvety mouthfeel, with a lot of burn in the middle.

Iíll be honest with you gentlemen, Iím watching the last of the mohicans as I write to you now. There is something else too. I didnít know this at the time of purchase, but this is a point brewery ale. Why is that significant? Well, I boycotted Point many years ago. My landlord in MIlwaukee owns the brewery and he is a wicked man who takes advantage of those who cannot defend themselves. Is there anything more cowardice? The taste of style is sweet with carmel notes but I definitely notice the undulating smooth palate of cruelty across my tongue. Can a jerk make anything that doesnít have some semblance of impure? I think not. Nice try James Wiechmann. I take comfort in your lousy website: http://www.wiechmannenterprises.com
