Just like its bigger brother this one is deep brown colored as well. Quite a strong character and very nice flavor. Cheers

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
From a bottle dated Aug. 13th, 2012. Meh..... Smells like wet dog. Not impressed. Dark brown color with small creamy head. Kind of a weak body with an alcohol type flavor. No real tastes that I can tell other than a little bitter. Reminds me of the generic type bock beer my grandparents served every once in a while.

12-oz. bottle. Pours a clear copper. Aroma of caramel, maple syrup, baked apple, and some brown sugar. A syrup caramel flavor pops up first followed by dark plum and a sharp apple vinegar bite, which helps temper the somewhat cloying sweetness. Mellow body; little carbonation. Good, but I expected something better.

Bottle, paired with a bowl of jujubes (jk). Pours dark brown with small off-white head. Nose of plum, alcohol, molasses. Flavour is plum, toffee, nutty malt, licorice. Main difference from 12 for me is less coffee flavour.

Caramel and chocolate is dominating in taste. Perhaps to cold when I drank it, so not so much aroma but one still notice the malts. Great beer and what an aftertaste.

Bullzeye sent me this for free (thanks) and I shared it with my buddy Mike. Mike tells me 12 is way better. I haven’t cracked that one yet. This beer is delicious. That killer aroma. Rich caramel and yeast. Smooth and awesome.

Bottle thanks to RobertDale ! Pours a nice mahogany umber color with a finger of eggshell bubbles. The nose is soft caramel, dried fruit and a bit of warm spice. The palate follows with a nice upfront soft sweetness of dark brown sugar, raisin a bit of licorice and a dark cocoa and bitter grass finish. Nice carbonation draws the finish out and cleans it up a bit.
