3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2013 On draught at Roscoe’s 4/13/13. Deep golden. Sweet caramel aroma. Grape juice flavor and an odd almost bitter finish. Seems much more like a malt liquor than any tripel. Again, had on draught, but at 26th Oregon Brewers Festival 7/24. Deep golden almost amber. Sticky sweet malt aroma. Taste is incredibly sweet malt with a very present alcohol note. Slightly bitter finish with an alcohol warming effect.

On tap at PIB 2015, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out a good mix of resin and biscuity caramel malt. Flavour is quite fruity, with stone fruits, light piney hops and a dry biscuity malt backing. Well-balanced and clean, but not terribly complex.

Bottle at Imazato. Fruity nose of orange and peach but not so fragrant. Rich malt flavor, honey, peaches. Quite sweet and a bit boring but nice drinking.

Bottle from LifeSource. Pours a clear medium amber in color. Nose is sweet with some dark fruit and a touch of alcohol. Malty and fruity. Slick mouthfeel. Some hop character. Big and sweet and malty. Nothing really jumps out at me.

Poured from a 12. Aroma has a slight caramel nose. First flavor is sweet, crisp and very carbonated. Finishes dank, like a Bud, and really bitter.

Decent stuff. A big red beer with malt forward head, wonderfully un-metallic for the style. Soft and subtle but warm. I think they did a great job but a 6-pack is a stretch at this ABV. They going after the Lagunitas market?

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle from Lifesource Natural Grocers in Salem OR
Says 9.8% alc
Clear light copper coloured ale with a nice cream coloured half inch head.
Aroma not very prominent..mostly bready malts and the slightest of spice from the rye.
Taste oddly different more fruity .. light peach..nectarine ( the yeast), some caramel malts and a touch of cascade hops. Nice actually
Nice smooth palate..very little sign of the strong alc volume.
I liked this one..strong but a good sipper.

This beer is great! Mahogany in color, malty aroma, mild hop flavor, but just enough bitterness to let you know that you are drinking a beer made by someone who knows what a beer ought to be!
