3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy orange brown with a massive head that leaves long lace in the glass. Aromas of bananas, apricots, sweet spice. Fruity palate, sweet caramel, warming alcohol, medium bodied and slightly yeasty. More approachable than the its bigger brothers, but not as complex.

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2012 hazy brown with white head. A bit of fruits and caramel. A lighter version than the 8 or 10. This doesnt make it boring though. Plum, raisin & caramel. It still has the long lasting taste and finish. Great!
Rerating June - 09. Vintage 2005 bottle. Wauw - aroma is off the chain - (again). Smooth, dried fruits, delicious liquorice. 4 Again - But closer to 4,1 than expected.
Re-rate. 31 Dec - 2012. Vinous, Rich and warming. Still has the yeast complexity that the 8 & 10 has. Great stuff..:-) 4 again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2009 Bottled. Amber colored beer with a large beige head. Nice aromas with malt, candi-sweetness and citrus. The flavor has dried fruit, hops and some alcohol. Full, sweet body. A nice beer. Rating: 7-4-8-4-15-3.8. 060328
Bottle, BB 191113. The pour results in a massive creamy off-white to beige head with good retention. The dark, orangey brown body is unclear, and has some sediments. The first aroma to escape the glass is a cellary, slightly yeasty one, soon followed by dried fruits, some roasted malts and hints of alcohol. Prunes and rum raisin also comes to mind. It’s a bit thin on the palate for a beer of this strenght, feeling sort of hollow in the mouth. Lightly roasted, chocolatey malts, alcohol notes, raisins, hoppy bitterness and a cellary touch in the flavor. The warming finish has a good blend of bitterness and chocolatey, roasted malts. A lovely beer, both lacking something and with something too much considering its strenght. Still, won’t shy away from it in the future. 090904

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
11.2oz bottle, best before 11/03/09. Pours a hazy mahogany with a moderate beige head. Aroma of graham crackers, figs, raisins, brown sugar, and some alcohol. Taste follows the aroma, though the taste is milder than I would’ve thought. Smooth on the palate, medium to high carbonation. Was hoping for a little more with this one--not that it’s a bad beer by any means, but not spectacular.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bott. Garnet brown with excitable off white head. Little brown chunks in the bottom. Smells of coriander soda and wild roots. Tastes of sweet molasses coariander, a little burnt malt, sugary. Refreshing and fairly flavorful. Palate is of soda, a mite thicker and more flavorful.

"MMMMMM Poured a hazy brown color with a nice head some sediment. Aroma was malty. Flavor was solid, malty with a hint of alcohol not not overwelming. Nice beer."
