3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Faint aroma of vanilla and cream. Moderate copper/crimson color. Creamy flavors of hops, vanilla, alcohol and caramel. Nothing much else to it. Overall, a decent ale.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
At cellar temperature and into a chalice. Deepest, russet copper and misted but radiant in the lights. Head goes up then goes down but dwells as a thin beige pad that laces well. Very salty, umami, savoury nose hinting at fresh baked pretzel, salted cashews and peanut husks, grilled pork with just a hint of marmalade. Bready, yeasty palate. Sweet upfront; biscuity with an oat cake character. Again with the nuttiness and strangely umami pork notes. Sweet finish after a lacklustre, earthy hop peak. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Balanced between sweet and dry with the alcohol being far too mellow. Malt driven. Big amount of orange blossom and candied orange peel is its saviour but this is residual. Session stuff with a kick. Not bad, not the best! (22fl.Oz bomber, no date stamp, International Beer Shop, W. Leederville)

Bomber. Pours a copper orange with a beige head and aroma of strong hops and pine. Taste is bitter up front, lots of good with more bitterness, pine, caramel and resin leading to dry, bitter, warming finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
With Z, pours a reddish orange color with a Java head. Nose is sweet caramel, malt and toffee. Taste is bitter and very hoppy, surprisingly so for an ASA, along with a mouthful of alcohol. Ends on the hoppy and bitter notes with a moderately long finish. Quaff Score 7 / 10

July 10th, 2013 - Rough Draftís Freudian Sip Strong Ale is a deep, auburn color. Itís clear and transparent, save for the waves made by condensation on the glass, and the low halo of foam circling the inside edge of the glass. The aroma and flavor match nicely: a mild maltiness, a heavy booziness, and the flavor of honey covered peanuts. Itís a slow, drinkable beer that needs short sips, but each sip is its own reward.

Looked great. Aroma was intriguing. Flavour a little disappointing. Surprisingly bitter, but decently balanced. I found it a better beer for tastings & pairings than a straight drinking beer.

Draft at the brewery. Pours ear copper with a fizzy off white head. Tastes like booze, cough syrup, raisin. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like dried fruits, raisin, alcohol.

Bottle, shared with Parksy. Reddish orange, hazy, medium off white head. Sticky toffee, marmalade, pine. Full bodied, a bit chewy, sweet and hoppy. Maybe it was my mood, but I drank the shit out of this! Delicious.
