3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown; very small but staying creamy, eggshell head; lots of lacing. Aroma of malts, pine, citrus, nuttiness, and light caramel. Flavor similar with malt, caramel, and piney hops. Medium-thick, moderately frothy body. Kind of plain but very drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle . clear amber, nice medium off white head that continues as a fine layer to the bottom of the glass. Citrus and pine aroma with some softer notes of caramel, prune and fig. Medium body and carbonation compements this beer nicely. Rich sweetness is well balnced by bitter citrus for a clean dry finish.

A pleasant strong ale for winter, not going over the top on ABV but givng you that little extra. dark amber, not a lot of head or lacing, a bit thick and syrupy. sweet and malty with a late hop bitterness and lingering, sugary, malts.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours out a dark red color without much of a head. Smell is sweet, full of caramel, some brown sugar. Taste is sweet and hoppy with a nice sugar flavor. Not really much to say here, and when comparing to arrogant / double bastard, this pales in comparision. still, for what it is, its good, its almost a session american strong ale. decent enough.
