3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Single bottle purchased from a Utah State Liquor Store in Kimball Junction, Utah on 11/02/2012. Colour: Dark brown with red hues and low head with lots of lacing. Nose: Heaping mounds of toffee infused malt. Hint of maple syrup. Chocolate dipped cherries. Shortbread. Total sugar-based nose. Taste: medium-high sweet, medium-light bitter, light sour. Layers of varying degrees of cocoa percentages. Espresso shots. Hearty malt again displays maple mid-late palate. Good for a bottle or two, but to sweet to enjoy over an entire evening.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Berry aroma, very nice! Out of a bottle (not my choice...) so no idea about appearance. Immediate grape and malt flavour with caramel followed by a strong hoppy finish. The wife described it tasting like a ski cabin and I can understand that. Not my usual style but complex.
