2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
What the hell, maybe this was a bad bottle. Dark amber/hazy orange beer with a tan head. Aromas of earthy funk, and leather. Tastes of sour milk, dirt, molasses, butterscotch candy, and some lurking terrible element. Dirty water aftertaste. Bittersweet mess of a beer, I might need to try this again to see if the bottle I had was bad.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Muddy beer from the first glass, looks like muddy water which destroys the beer. Heater all the way down, sweet and strong.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not sure about the date, nothing to find at the bottle. Orange-brown coloured beer, head should hold a bit longer. Smell of fruits and spices. A bit of a metallic taste, fruits, caramel and slightly some earth.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma of raisins, rum, brown sugar and toffee. Appearance is caramel brown with light, bubbly head. Flavor matches the nose; quite sweet really. The palate was lightly bubbly and the mouthfeel was thin. Not my favorite BSA.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
WWWhat the hey, it’s been in my fridge for a wwwhile time to drink it. Lifeless and saturated caramel orange with no head. Ah, perhaps ‘twas in my fridge a little too long. Booze bomb with fruit, yeast and caramel on the nose. Taste of booze, fruit, caramel and a bit of bready malt. Hot finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clouded-with-yeast-sediment reddish hue. Small tannish head that falls quickly and leaves no lacing behind. Big malty aroma. Bit of a sherry/port thing going on. Fruity. Sweet mouth. Malty and raisiny. Very good. Pleasantly balanced and a joy to drink. Might age a few and see how they hold up.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
11.2oz bottle in a Trappist glass. Pours dark brown with ruby notes and a little head. Seems like it might be a bad bottle because there is little carbonation. Aroma strong of spicy yeast, hints of chocolate in the strong caramel and doughy malts, and some light hops. Flavor about the same. Flat, but I think it’s the bottle. A decent beer.
