3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured a clear ruby amber color with a thick beige head. Would make a nice photo. Light malty aroma with some sugary sweetness, spiciness, pepper, and a little lemon zing. Spiciness and pepper charge the front of the flavor. Some coriander and yeast followed with some creaminess and a light maltiness. Aftertaste full of hops. Moderate mouthfeel and carbonation. The hops in the back end were a little too strong for me. I was really enjoying the other flavors before the hops asserted themselves. Should age nicely. I'm looking forward to this one at a later date.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bomber, courtesy of a sweet trade with FlacoAlto, pours up with a clear brown body that supports a thin light tan head. The aroma is earthy and slightly oxidized and then brown sugar, molasses and oddness. The taste delivers soft molasses and brown sugar flowing into muted dates and prunes. It gets pretty earthy and oxidized here and there.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Had this sometime at the end of 2012, as part of a 03.03.03 - 12.12.12 tasting. I had meant to enter these a while ago while they were fresh and add a few extra details, but that didn’t happen. Review from notes. Anyway, here we go.
2.0 A: Muddy shit. Small head that falls almost instantly.
1.5 S: Smells like old homebrew and not homebrew that started out good. Rancid spicy caramel. Instead of alligator pepper, it smells like alligator hide.
2.0 T: Tastes better than it smells, but just barely. Rancid chocolate and caramel. Moldy old wheat. A bit of roast and a light, out of place, spice.
2.5 M: Heavier medium body. Sludgy mouthfeel. The only thing that impresses is that a decent amount of carbonation is still present.
1.5 D: Mostly ass beer at this point. Enough said.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
From notes. Tasted on 12/12/12 from a capped 22oz bottle with Curtis, and the Nashville crew. Pours hazy amber with an average beige head that leaves thin, bubbly lace. The nose is pretty far gone, very oxidized, with a bit of a yeasty aroma. The flavor has some spice on the back, but is really just as oxidized as the nose. The body is medium with average carbonation and long malty oxidized finish.

Opened a bottle on 1/1/2015. Still good carbonation in the pour. Cotton candy and spice aroma. Lots of oxidation but flavors are still decent. Not great but decent.
