3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: 12 oz bottle at the Marriott West Loop, 11/18/13
Aroma: The nose is malty and a little sweet! some fruit notes, and a bit of spice
Appearance: It pours a clear orange-amber color with a small off-white head and light lace
Flavor: The flavor is on the sweet side, but balanced, nice spice, hop notes, and a little alcohol
Palate: This one is medium bodied, with a nice: soft and clean mouthfeel to it
This one is certainly worth trying, and it has a really nice mouthfeel to it, but it is not an overly impressive beer. Nice, slightly dull winter seasonal.

Draft at Momo’s. Deep ruby pour with a frothy tan head. Aroma of toffee and baked bread malts, spices and dark fruits. Flavor is sweet toffee, caramel, bread, baking spices, and plums. Medium thick bodied and subtle carbonation. Not too shabby.

Saint Arnold great beer hall please do not drive to Houston to ser it you will love it. Except you have to go only at tour time and pay $8 to get in...Then if you like barrel aged beer as I do you have to pay $10 more. FORGET IT. Cannot be that good.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
It was OK. Predominant malt aroma with some graininess. Dark brown color like bread crust with an off-white head. Again, malts are the predominant flavor here with a mellowness that was distinctly English. Some spice but subtle. I didn’t detect much in the way of hop bitterness. Alcohol was well hidden. Decent but they make better.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2013 12oz. bottle/draught @ Fat Grass: This one pours a clear, orangish amber color. There was a very small off white head on it that didn’t linger or leave any lacing. Pretty decent nose. Caramel malts, some fruits (apple?), hints of spices. The taste is pretty good too. Caramel malts, with a hint of roast. A subdued sweetness with some bitterness trying to come through, resulting in a hint of dryness in the finish. .

12 oz bottle courtesy of AirForceHops. Nice orange pour with lots of tiny bubbles rising to the top. Biscuity malt nose with lots of sweet fruit. Taste is all sweet malt up front, spice & hop bite linger nicely to a dry, slightly bitter finish. Hard to belive this is 7%. Very drinkable!
