3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from CoOp Bellingham
Cloudy dark amber color with small creamy head. Aroma of caramel, a bit cheesy. Sweetish and smooth mouthfeel, strong caramel flavor with a nutty accent, light Parmigiano Reggiano impression, some roasted nuts in the final. Strong bitterness.
Old tasting (it’s about 1 years old), and not impressive anyway.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at Port Townsend, pours an opaque dark amber with a small white head. Aroma brings out light Christmas spices and bready caramel malts. Flavour is very earthy and spicy, with notes of feet. This isn’t very pleasant to me. Too much feet in this.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2008-09-17. Hazy dark amber body with a larger long lasting beige head and lacing. Nice citrusy aroma with awesome fresh smelling oranges and tangerines (8+) have me rather excited to taste it, only to be let down. Odd flavour at first. Tart-bitter hops character, an odd tangy with a kiss of alcohol in the finish. Brief highlights echo the citrus of the aroma but they are disappointingly intermittent. Average palate on the thin side. Odd, has its moments. Numbers came out high because I liked the aroma, but I probably would have put this a touch lower overall. <i>Bottle shared by Blankboy</i>
