3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled on tap at PIB, pours hazy dark orange with a small beige head. Aroma of caramel / butterscotch, tropical fruits (peach, pineapple) and booze. Flavour of caramel, dark fruits and booze - the booze sort of cancels out some of the other qualities. Solid.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(draught - listed as John’s Locker Stock Charles?) clear amber, creamy head with excellent lacing. Nose of caramel, delicious hop mix, yellow cake, pineapple, smells great. Taste is a bit astringent though. Twigs, bitter citrus oils, bit of caramel but masked by the intense bitterness, oily body with s bitter palate finish. Not too hard to drink and some alcohol presence. Big On pine as well.

Tap at Flying Saucer, Houston.
Pours an average cloudy cheddar yellow with a nose of light, buttery grapefruit and tea leaf bread. Flavor is semi-watery grapefruit and light pine/orange. Average mouthfeel. Too restrained; tastes like an early effort homebrew.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: Pours a burnt orange color with a nice big white head and some spotty lacing.
S: Interesting aromas of toffee, toasted malt, and citrus. A lot of orange and perhaps tangerine notes. There’s a slight oxidation type aroma to it as well. Some sweetness of brown sugar and just a little bit of alcohol.
T: A touch sweeter than I had expected with a lot of brown sugar and toffee. A nice toasted bread malt base to the beer with good hop flavors. Nice and floral with some moderate citrus levels to it.
M: Medium in body with a moderate level of carbonation.
O: A somewhat generic "strong ale", but it was good, so no real complaints.
