3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle. Pours a darkish but clear amber with very little head, no lacing, plenty of carbonation. Overly sweet and malty for my tastes with too much alcohol burn. Bread, raisins, caramel and soap. Not a disaster but not really into this one.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 ounce bottle, interesting slogan, I haven’t spent much time in Utah so I’m not sure if it will ever be the same but it is good to know they are brewing higher alcohol beers these days. Smooth tastte of chocolate malt followed by a warm burn of the alcohol I don’t know if it was because mine was rather warm but the alcohol taste was quite pronounced. Solid beer but probably would not buy again

Bottle pour. Clean, dark copper in glass. Thin head. Aroma is cereal grains, mocha and caramel. Medium body. Taste is malt centric. A semi bitter finish Will Utah be the same? Most likely. Well done.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Amber, very clear and luminous, tall, persistent head, little lacing.
Full body, very rich, silky texture, which it in part owes to the high alcohol content, despite low heat. Good length, rich finish.
Malty, caramel, little but detectable hop.
Satisfying beer, does not disappoint.
Sweet, little bitterness or acidity.

Pours a clear copper with thin tan head. Aromas of toast, some molasses, raisin, sweet caramel. Flavor is less sweet than expected with a medium body and average carbonation. High abv is mostly well-hidden but with a lingering warmth.

Bottle from Woodmans in Waukesha. Pours an orangey brown with an off-white head. Little lace. Aroma has mostly caramel and lemon. Taste follows with sweet caramelly malts, lemon - not real heavy - and some brown sugar. Finishes too sweetly.
