2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours orangeish with a large head that quickly disappears. Smells very sweet and medicinal with some fruity and spicy notes too. Taste is very similar to the nose - a bit strange. Medium to light mouthfeel. Unique beer for sure, but don’t think I’d drink it again. Unless it was free of course...

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.
