3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750mL bottle pours with a clear amber to ruby red body that supports a two minute long tan head. The aroma is full and pulsing with brown sugar, prunes, figs, molasses covered graham crackers, cinnamon, a bit of ginger and chocolate followed by some booze. The taste is rich and sweet and fruity with sweet plum juice, brown sugar, figs and a honey covered ripe red apple slice note. Behind those notes are cinnamon covered ginger snap cookies and some chocolate followed by spicy yeast and booze that surface and help bring this to the finish. Nice brew.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle served in my decades old Chimay Chalice: Pours a reddish brown with a fading head and some lace. Lovely tart and twangy fruit profile over candi sugar and yeast character. Plenty of that "Bruery" house character of overly sweet, overly boozy, and overly yeasty notes too. Methinks I need to get another bottle and sit on it for two or three years whereist it will be an Imperial Flanders Sour Ale.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy amber-brown, bubbly head, some alcohol, yeasty taste, light phenols. The alcohol provides balance, but itís reminding me of La Trappe Quad, but it is rough, not as refined as it needs to be.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 from greens. Big malt body and dark fruit flavors. Chewy grain toffee and baked bread. This will do well in a barrel for sure. Toffee and plum aromas. Dangerously smooth. Pretty decent big beer. Good for the winter season.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draft at the Livermore Saloon. It pours a deep golden orange color with an orangy head. The aroma has lots of fruit candy and hints of banana. The flavor is strong with acetone alcohol, hard candy and spicy yeast. Heavy body and not very easy to drink. Scroll past.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Ellynís Tap & Grill in Glen Ellyn, IL., and a full pour to a sampler showing a clear & bright, brownish amber color, with frothy & persistent foam to the head, and wavy cling to the lacing. The nose was alcohol presence, spice, substantial malt, and esters as plum & cherry. The taste was sweet, with some tartness, the esters, warming alcohol, and a sherry-like nature. A little syrupy, with a medium to full body. With winter hanging on, well suited for the occasion.
