3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear amber pour with a dark ruby hue. Weak head and lacing. The nose is of malt against a strong alcohol background. Medium body with a smooth texture. Low carbonation level. The flavor profile is two dimensional - caramel malt sweetness over a strong alcohol background. The hop level is so low it’s almost undetectable. As it warms, and the palate becomes accustomed to the alcohol, the sweetness comes forward. On the finish, it flows from sweetness to an alcoholic aftertaste. A good, but not great, beer. More hops and dark malt would improve this one a great deal.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
It poured a clear amber color with an off-white head. The aroma was of grain, caramel and toffee. The taste was the same with some dark fruits added in the finish. Ok.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500mL bottle. It’s an opaque rusty orange color with a small head. The taste really reminds me of a doppelbock. I like the sweet taste. It does have a slightly hoppy aroma, and a good malty taste. Very drinkable, I’m happily surprised with this beer! Nice find.

Drank this a few months back. Really can't remember details. Found it bland and unremarkable. Making a note that I don't need to try again.

Big bomber bottle. Pours a nice caramel color, some head, very little lacing. Aroma is sweet grassy malt and some dough. Flavor is very sweet caramel malt, very little hops. Palate is a bit chewy. Overall a decent beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a clear dark gold to copper body under a fizzy one finger beige head. The nose is fairly heavy on the sweetness, some caramel malt, corn, minimal to no hops, a little alcohol. The flavor is pretty bland really, just some thin caramel and corn syrup, fairly noticeable alcohol on the finish. Lingering sweet finish, a touch of burnt caramel on the finish. Medium bodied, a hint of stickiness, lightly warming finish. Not bad, but lacking in character.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
For a strong beer, this is pretty smooth. Lots of malt presence in the aroma and taste, some honey sweetness, some hay. Orange amber with small creamy head. Not as bad as expected.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours hazy orange with a thick but fleeting tan head and more than a bit of flaky sediment. Unremarkable malty cereal aroma. Overly sweet malty flavor with no hop profile and a flat mouthfeel.
