3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Copper with tan head and light lacing. Smells like candied-apple, brandy, and an undercurrent of vetiver. Taste is more to the bitter side with a little sour and some sweetness. A little astringent, nice bitter finish.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a bottle. Cloudy caramel brown with an off white ring of foam. Semi sweet toffee aroma. Light carbonation with a medium slightly oily body that clings to the glass. Smooth syrupy like texture that coats the tongue and roof of the mouth. Just a hint of bitterness along with the toffee flavor. Hides the alcohol well. No harshness and no burn at the finish. Flavors linger awhile. Very enjoyable.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I’m forced to review this after having poured a glass with a flat head—I think I got unlucky and got one that had just lost some of its carbonation or something. That said, it still pours a deep reddish brown and tastes wonderful. It’s kind of nutty and simultaneously smooth and robust. Fantastic beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
was pleasantly surprised by this beer! poured a hazy brownish red color with a nice thin white head that lasted nicely eventually lacing the glass. the aroma smacks you as you open the bottle with strong aromas of roasted coffee and hazelnuts. Has a nice body with just the right amount of carbonation. Flavor is bittersweet chocolate a bitty nutty. ends nicely with a small bite. the alcohol level is noticeable but not unpleasant.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy, brassy appearance with a small, off white head and modest lasting. Sweet, malty aroma of toffee and ripe fruit with a light spicy hop edge. Flavors of caramel, shortbread cookies and dried fruit overpower the subtle hops. Full bodied, moderately carbonated mouthfeel. Lingering alcohol in the finish is noticable.
