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.

Red ales are my target point. I’m actually drunk right now and I can barely type this. I can say, however, this is a good red ale. Nothing exceptional however. Little strong and spicy for style. As always, damn you all!

Botella en el Kitsch (Gasteiz). Color marrón oscuro. Abundante, duradera y cremosa espuma (una de las más cremosas que recuerde). Gran cuerpo, aroma a lúpulo por todos los sitios. En boca se nota demasiado el alcohol, es el único pero que se le puede poner a esta cerveza.

Bottle. Deep amber pour with a frothy off white head. Hoppy aromas. Piney hop zing with smooth caramel malt undertones and spices. It has a nice little zip to the mouthfeel. Good body and carbonation. Would be very refreshing sitting outside with a cool sea breeze.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 05/02/2013. Pours reddish mahogany, huge fluffy white head sticks around for ages. Aroma is resinous, piney hops with toffee, caramel malts, dark bitterness. Taste is sticky, sharp citrus and pine hops, sweet caramel maltiness with dark fruits, quick transition to long bitter finish. Prickly carbonation, medium palate. Nice, but this bottle unfortunately had a bit of age, would love to try a fresher sample.

UPDATED: APR 30, 2013 Draft. Dark reddish brown. Small to medium light brown head. Super hoppy aroma. Pine, some sweetness, alcohol, and something a little different...cant quite put my finger on it, some spices maybe.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a beautiful, hazy, nearly translucent amber-copper color. A very stubborn taupe, fluffy, foamy head forms. As it dissipates in an excruciatingly slow manner, suds cling to the glass like foamy glue. Toffee aroma with emerging notes of grass and pine. Medium-bodied, mildly creamy mouthfeel. Big caramel, a touch of emerging licorice, and some lingering hop heat late. Very good beer.
