3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A slight disappointment for me, given my great affinity for other Speakeasy brews, particularly Big Daddy. I found the finish to be a little watery as others have mentioned.

Pours clear maroon with ok head and lacing. Finishes kind of bitter and rusty. Not my thing really - a pour out. Tap at DC Beer festival.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
650ml brown bottle. Orangey red pour, fairly clear. Small but creamy and long lasting tan head, good sticky lace. Nose has some bright pine and citrus hops and some earth and caramel. Taste has toffee malts, nut, toasted malt, bit of roast and earth, orange peel and piney hops. Aftertaste has citrus and pine hops and a bit of lasting malts. Medium bitterness. Overall a very pleasant amber ale, good balance and way better than expected.

Pours clear amber with a 1-finger bone-colored head. Aroma of grapefruit hops with some caramel malt underneath. Medium body with a light dryness to the finish. Flavor of grapefruit hops that lingers through the finish, with a touch of caramel underneath.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear reddish brown color with a moderate light tan head on it. Nose is well balanced with a nice mix of slightly floral elements and a bit of caramel coming through. Taste is a little sweet, yet remains light enough to be an easy drink. I can’t complain about this one too much. Not bad.

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...

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.
