2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bombers from Caponeís and Wegmanís. Pours turbid ruby reddish with minimal off-white head. Nose is earthy nut browny, caramel malt. Tastes metallic, earthy, pretty bad actually. Finishes medium in palate heft with some earthy metallic notes. The first miss from these excellent brewers.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
After reading some other reviews, I am wondering if I got a bad batch. The beer was impossible to pour at one time, as the head was just too large. It lasted quite a while. Note: I will occasionally pour a bad beer, but I actually tried patiently on a bottle and it still was foaming like crazy. After letting it sit until the head died, it looks like murky pond water. There are caramel and toffee notes but upfront it is way too carbonated. Something vaguely vegetable about it too.
This is just not a good beer.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy, brown pour with a frothy off-white head. The aroma has plum and light wood. It has a medium body that is just a touch too fizzy. The taste is mildly roasted with a little smokey warmth in the finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a clear dark ruby body with a small fizzy beige head that faded to a wispy film. The nose is sweet and super malty with a light hint of roast and tobacco. The flavor is a bit flat, a little too sweet without a whole lot of depth to it. Lots of fruitiness, some tobacco, a little alcohol. Medium bodied and a touch clingy with minimal soft carbonation. Meh, like many beers of this style, itís just all sweetness, and not a lot of nuance.

Sweet malty smell, dark amber appearance, also a sweet taste with a little bit of a weird taste that is hard to place...maybe the hops?? no hops that are noticeable though...alcohol taste

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle, big thanks to BrainForest. Clear red brown color. Thin off-white head, kind of bubbly. Dots and bits of lace. Mostly caramel malt. Toasty malt, kind of spicy. Touch of oxizidation, I wonder how old this is (no date found on bottle). Moderate sweet taste, mildly tangy tart, sort of light bitter, sort of a spicy bite. Medium body. Lighter carbonation, mild roughness. Slick texture. No, this is not a good beer. Iím starting to wonder if Three Heads just isnít good. I think part of the problem is that they donít date their beers. Who knows how old this beer is, but I bet itís not fresh.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle from Spirits Fischer Blvd. Poured a clear mahogany body under a dense creamy beige head. Aroma has a lot going on, peat, earth, rotting raisin, bad nut shells, rotting bread. Smoother body than expected, light carbonation, creamy mouthfeel, average duration on the aftertaste. Flavor isnít as complex as the aroma but what is missing seems to be the "rotting" aromas. Notes of earth, peat, old dried out rsisin, brown bread dough, fig. Not bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly cloudy amber pour with a dark ruby cast. Normal head volume, retention and lacing.
Light nose of dark fruit (raisin, plum), molasses and caramel.
Medium bodied with a texture that has creamy aspects. Richly carbonated with effervescence from the middle on.
The flavor profile is reasonably intense (but lacks the punch of the World Class Wee Heavies), a bit complex and reasonably balanced. Blended dark fruits lead, but are a bit subdued for the style. Prune over caramel constitutes the middle as a nice effervescence takes hold. As these fade towards the finish, an herbal bitterness is prominent. The finish is a lingering herbal flavor with notes of caramel. Decent, but far from outstanding

This is a great beer for a cooler day. I had it first in the middle of summer, and it was a little heavy for the weather. It is a wonderful ale, with a nice kick.
