3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Blue Dog. Pours burnt sienna with fizzy khaki head. This is by far the darkest brown cider I have ever poured. Nose is sweet apples and cinnamon, earthy brown sugar, honey. Very complex nose. Tastes of apple, earthy brown sugar, molasses, with a complex, rather hefty palate and a delicious finish. This one is outstanding.

I donít really care for ciders, but this one is fantastic. Dark and sugary without being cloying. I can drink this again for sure.

Dark (artificial color), dry. More flavor than most ciders. Becomes increasingly sour as you progress.

Bottle. Dark, pretty average on all counts. Didnít spend much time on this because it has, among other things, carmel color. Why? Meh.

Bottle share by Bob, smells like apples and cinnamon. Taste is similar, bit of an apple pie filling taste, excellent cider.

Bomber to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good; a fairly transparent deep copperish brown with light beige lacing and lively carbonation. Smells solid; a nice fresh apple presence with a bit of molasses. Tastes like it smells with a bit of brown sugar too. Solid on the palate. An enjoyable cider.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle pour..darker than expected even with the dark and dry moniker..dark brownish copper ruby hue..aroma of apples..slight tart..perhaps traces of the molasses and brown sugar..mouthfeel is ok..it is dry..yet doesnít seem to have that high quality fresh pressed apple linger and taste..slight cinnamon as well..

Pours a dark chocolate brown color with a hint of red. Aroma is apples, sugar, molasses, and caramel. The taste is sweet and crisp. Brown sugar, caramel, apples. Thereís a lot to like here. Iím really digging this cider. A bit on the sweet side but if you like that sort of thing this cider has a lot going for it.

Amber, maybe cola colored pour. Sweet caramel, some apple, spices, and brown sugar. Maybe a bit of a cola note to it. The flavor is sweet, but not cloying. Cola, brown sugar, apple, and a subtle spice.

Bomber. Ruby red. Tiny tan head that dissipates quickly. Apple, vanilla, little bit of charcoal. Nice.
