2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Blah. This beer is terribly unbalanced. Aroma of alcohol and malt. Pour was a dark amber with no head. Taste was very alcholic. Very little was coming through the alcohol burn, but there are strong heavy malt beatings and some hoppiness in the sticky wet aftertaste.

Copper orange in color... Aroma is slightly malty and spicy... Flavor is intensely sweet up front, hints of spices, mild alcohol notes... Finish is slightly off, pretty unremarkable beer

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Not a red ale. This is a barley wine. Pours beautiful enough; ruby-infused copper color. But the aroma is pure alcohol, as is the taste. The ABV is only 11.2%, so more taste should be easy to come by. As a barley wine, it's below average. As a red ale -- imperial or otherwise -- a failure. Bad elf indeed!

12oz bottle. 2011 Vintage. Honey-colored, big bubbles, clear, light lacing. A lackluster effort, in my opinion. Yet, I am SO biased towards this style, itís not in me to rate it less than 2.8. Cloyingly sweet, also bitter, lacking complexity. I hated the first taste, but it grows on you...a bit.

Pours a copper-golden color with whisps of bubbles for white head. Cherry, syrupy sweet boozey aroma. A sweet booze-bomb...some cherry sweetness but definitely boozy. Probably will know me on my a$s this late at night.

Nice red color with white foam. Lots of caramel and malt in the aroma. Taste is sweet and cloying. Fruity with a finish I canít describe. It makes you want to rub your tongue against the roof of your mouth. Minimal to no carbonation. I really didnít enjoy this beer.

2009. Pours deep amber, nose of fruit and some alcohol. Fruits grapefruit, caramel, molasses, some hops detected. Enjoyable, unique, but misses something.

LOOKS THIN! Orange but almost yellow from the thinness. Aroma is strong, sweet, hoppy, and alcoholic. Like candy. Light-bodied, but full on the palate. Strong ABV dominates the finish... extremely soft and pakcs a big punch! Man, this is 20 times better than Bad Elf.
