2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins. Pours a deep burgundy orange appearance with a thin light brown head. Toasty grain / caramel / nutty, cookie dough aroma with mild hops and a bit of skunk. Burnt sugar / caramel, slightly sweet, a bit metallic, mild cardboard flavor. Bottle seems a bit old but I really never liked this beer much at all. Hopefully this is the last time I’ll ever drink it.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours dark brown with ruby tints. Head is small; very little lacing. Aroma has some dark reddish sweet malts and some weak hops. Starts out a little toasty and sweet, fades quickly, and then some of the toast and sweet malts linger in the aftertaste, if not very much. Also a little metallic. Honestly, I was expecting worse, so can’t complain too much. It’s drinkable.

Poured from a 13 year old bottle, thanks to Jeremy. Toast, malty, caramel, bready, fig, toffee, oxidized. Had a fresh bottle at the same time. The fresh bottle had skunky notes, malty, pilsner malt. I prefer the aged bottle.
