3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
W aromacie sporo karmelu i lekkie nuty drewniane, poprawny, ale nie uwodzi. Za to smak rekompensuje braki: jako pierwsza uderza potężna wanilia na karmelowej podbudowie, wraz z ogrzewaniem pojawia się coraz więcej nut owocowych, z przewagą kwaskowej, dojrzałej wiśni. Nieco brakuje gęstości i zdecydowanie brakuje choćby krzty goryczki by odeprzeć słodycz. Piwo jest zdradliwie gładko pijalne. Naprawdę solidny quad.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Something unattractive about the brown color and low scumy head. Alcohol comes through in the nose and taste. Flavors of figs and brown sugar. Very sweet and unbalanced so. Not a bad beer but I’m not going to seek this out again.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
DATE REVIEWED: June 17, 2014... GLASSWARE: Duvel snifter... OCCASION: year in public education #15--done!...APPEARANCE: intimidating dark black body that sports a thin white head that settles quickly--a white on black spectacle... AROMA: toffee and peat malt dominate the nostrils; fruity yeasts--peach, pear, apple--provide a floral balance... PALATE: active, warm, full-bodied--worth sipping of 10% ABV; like a strong ale in texture, but a bit buttery too... TASTE: complex fruit--plum, black currants, and banana--with clove cigarettes and milk stout properties--a demanding,, playful experience... OVERALLL: the kitchen sink seems thrown in here, with a serious backbone that rewards the drinker with hear and flavor--a big beer that could be brought out for big occasions....

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
750 ml bottle purchased @ the brew pub on my visit awhile back. Color is a deep brown with ruby highlights, not much penetration of light. Fizzy head that lingered until the end. Aroma is sugar with prune juice.
Flavor is cloying sweet. Caramelized sugar, Molasses, candy syrup, sugar dipped raisins and maybe a hint of yeast underneath all this sugar. Texture is sticky and syrupy medium body, leaning on the thin side. On the positive side no alcohol from time it mellowed in the cellar. Overall I like Sly Fox, so this is not a reflection on their brewery but this brew will not stand up to any other in the style. Way to sweet.
