3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle...very malty with both sweet dark fruit and a pleasant sourish character to balance all the malt. Well done.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle, no date. Brown sugar molasses, raisin aroma. Flavors also if strong red wine grape, raisin, molasses, some aged hops. A fairly intense one that feels a little out of date, but is a great beverage.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Poured dark clear brown color with an average fizzy light brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted malt and small alcohol aroma. Medium body with a dry smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium toasted sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Good brew.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Caramel brown color, cloudy, thick with virtually no head. Aroma is heavy malt but also sour fruit. Finish is short and taste is dominated by the sour nature. Very different than I expected but it grew on me.
