3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft to taster at the Fishers SK. Looks solid; a mildly hazy burnt orange with off-white head. Smells of dark fruit, oak, and vanilla with a fairly sweet backbone. Tastes like it smells, but more robust and balanced, and with more of a vanilla presence. Mouthfeel is medium full-bodied with a bit of pleasant tartness on the back end. Solid, and tastes better than it smells.

Can. Deep amber body. Beige head. Aroma of overripe dark fruit, alcohol, plum, raisin, caramel, biscuit. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly bitter. Taste of raisin, plum, brown sugar, hot alcohol. Medium body, slick texture, lively carbonation. less sweetness would help, but good flavors and aromas.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from 16oz can. Pours cola brown with thin beige head that disappears quickly. Aroma is lots of maple syrup, raisins and dried fruits. The taste follows with a great sweetness and some fruity esters. I had this at GABF and there was a distinct apple cider flavor that I don’t get with the slightly aged can.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can... Clear copper ale with a flimsy, fleeting, white head. The nose is a melange of caramel, white wine and mild oak. Medium to full-bodied and a touch oily with laid-back carbonation. The fllavor offers lovely caramel and toffee, accompanied by light tartness. Good balance for the style, but it does lean a touch sweet, as it should. Finishes rich, caramely and nourishing. Quite the meal. Can courtesy of StFun. Thanks, Josh!

Dark mahogany/purple color with burgundy hues and no head.
Aroma of cherries soaked in liquor, port wine, wood and vanilla extract.
Super sweet, with dates, cake and beet sugar, low bitterness.
Full body, cloying, heavy, complex, hard to drink but a good digestif.
