3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy pink-orange. Warm, roasty bready sweet-smelling aroma. Sweet, rounded flavor with some slight graininess, lots of caramel and moderately nutty. Surprising bitterness, but somehow the substantial bitterness exists without really cancelling out the sweetness. I suppose it may be a double/triple red ale, but it’s a barleywine, really. A pretty good one, but maybe a bit much on the crystal malts for me.

Pours reddish copper with a fine tan head. Nose is a strong mix of floral hops and a sweet red malt. Flavor is well balanced between the hops, wheaty malt, and a touch of alcohol. Good stuff.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Ale potente e caramellata, che alterna un carattere dolciastro e maltoso ad una luppolatura secca ed importante. Avvolgente al naso, cremosa al palato, persistente e di corpo medio-abbondante... Una favola!

Bottle shared in NH. The bottle’s a few years old now. Pours clear reddish-gold with a frothy white head. The nose has leafy hops, pine, some toasted grains. Medium to heavy sweet flavor with rich grainy malts, jammy citrus, melon. Full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sugary finish, lots of bready malts, ripe orange. Not bad.

Draft at The Confessional. Poured a pretty amber-red color wwith a small, but fluffy white head. Aroma has a strong hop presence, juicy, some pine resin too. Flavor was sweet boozy malts, hops are certainly there. Pretty easy to drink, but could get you drunk real quick.

Draft pour pint at special brews. Pours a dark purple red color with a cream foam head. Spicey, malty aroma. Flavor.is heavy malt, light spice, and a roasted finish. Has a warming feel to it. I feel like this would be a nice winter beer, though it’s doing just fine here in the summer heat. Lingering malty, almost cinnamon like finish. Good beer here.
