3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A clear brown body with a voluptous light brown head that leaves loads of lacing on the glass. Sweet nose with nutty, caramelly and creamy notes. Taste is sweet with some liquorice and a mildly roasty finish and a lingering bitterness. Soft carbonation and moderately ample palate and some warmth. Thos is quite pleasant and drinkable.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a cloudy, dark chestnut brown color with a half finger beige head that quickly fades into a thin, lasting ring. Minimal spotty lacing.
Slightly earthy aroma with grassy hops and a decent balance of roasted and sweet malt notes. Floral hops up front followed by hints of toast, chocolate, caramel and toffee.
Medium bodied and surprisingly hop forward for the style. Some dry bitterness complimented by a complex malt bill and maple sweetness. A bit more roast than expected but nit overly dry or acrid with hints of coffee and toast. This is cut by the maple sweetness as well as some subtle spice, caramel, toffee and hazelnut. Decently balanced and the high ABV is well masked, but there’s an odd lingering aftertaste that hurts drinkability. Not bad but I don’t think I would go for this one again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Wegman’s. Cloudy, syrupy knockout of a beer, malty like a barleywine, hits like a sledgehammer for whatever reason. Tastes a little like it’s been around awhile, but could also be this beer’s intended flavor. Enjoyed it more first time I had it, 3-4 years ago, so maybe I did get an old batch.
