3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Iím always excited to get my hands on the latest installment of Sweet Waterís Dank Tank series. Iíve landed some pretty awesome brews from it in the past. Here is goes.
Pours a deep reddish brown with a thin frothy white head. Leaves a nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is slightly bitter, citrus rind, floral notes, brown sugar, and a hint of alcohol. Taste feels a little empty on the front then a wave of citrus, hops, and spices hits you, before fading away in a faint malty sweetness. Finish is rather clean, and the mouthfeel is smooth if not a bit on the thin side.
Overall this is a decent beer, and the progression of flavor you get from it is unique. Unfortunately I feel like itís a bit on the forgettable side, as it really lacks any sort of "wow" factor.

Bottle. It poured a dark copper color with an off-white head. The aroma was of hops and malts. The taste was similar to the aroma with more hops and malts. It had a medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Nice.

"Darkish brick red color. Hop heavy, but with plenty of malt to back it up. Earthy. lightly floral and piney, caramel and a hint of sweetness and roast to offset the bitter. Pretty nice, and easy at 8+%."

Rated on notes from a tasting on 26 Dec 2013 -- Had on tap back home, Fort Walton Bch, FL. A nice red, nothing remarkable. Well, maybe the way you could drink several without realizing the potency.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz bottle for 9 bucks. Pours a very dark reddish copper color with a huge light tan head. Aroma is huge caramel malt with slight pine hops and a little doughy as well. Taste is not very big on the malt flavors though. This one is mostly a piney/floral hop, a little sweet on the back end with a smooth bitterness. Body is medium, creamy and slightly slick. This is another fine addition to the Dank Tank series.
