4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
DATE TASTED: March 3, 2014... GLASSWARE: Kisatsky’s Tavern pint.. OCCASION: a Strat and Game of Thrones night... APPEARANCE: intimidating dark amber body; thick, creamy, beige two-finger head that proudly sits a good duration... AROMA: beautiful balance of caramel malts and bright West Coat hops; low citrus, more aromatic and flowery...PALATE: good beer/head mix in the sip, with the creamy viscosity rounding full-bodied impact...TASTE: a BIG pale ale, as old and well-intentioned as the 18th amendment itself; big pine cone bite, warm and malty late... OVERALL: I came back to this beer a decade after I introduced it at a house party (it was wildly successful that afternoon)--and after taking it to a poker night, I found a similarly positive reaction; strong, demanding pale ale that gently shakes the teeth and smooth out the throat; the caramel especially sweetens the end...

Nicely balanced. Nutty malt flavor with hints of earthiness give way to a bitter hops punch that travels through the finish. Very easy to drink. I’ll make sure to have this again.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On draft. Pours a rusty amber color with a medium off white head. Aroma of red and caramel malts, some earthy and pine hops. Flavor is oxidized, mildly sweet, generically bitter. Somewhat metallic. Medium bodied, average carbonation. Average palate in general. This is mediocre.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cor de cobre com tons rubi, cristalina e com espuma cremosa bege de média formação e alta persistência regular/bom lacing;
Aroma de caramelo, toranja e toques de maracujá;
Sabor de início de caramelo rapidamente equilibrado pelo amargor cítrico de toranja com final levemente adstringente; retrogosto também levemente adstringente.
Cerveja bem equilibrada entre malte e lúpulo, com um perfil bem inglês para uma cerveja americana.

3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Good flavor. Not much nose. A little astringent aftertaste, but might be due to bar lines. Overall I would drink again.

Smell: Caramel; Molases; Dates; Diacetyl
Taste: Cola; Citrus Hops; kinda like a cheap soda… like Shasta.
Mouth-feel: Medium Carbonation; Thin body; sticky, sugary
Overall: Not good at all. Really disappointed in this one, because I have respect for Speakeasy and generally love their beers. Too bad.

12 oz bottle pours dark red with a off-white head. Bottle from 11/20/13. Dammit. Earthy and caramel. Bland, papery flavor. Gotta get some freshies from these guys.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Nice amber color but otherwise underwhelming. A bit bready, a bit soapy. A fairly generic amber without a lot of subtlety. Soapiness definitely hangs around.
