3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz. bottle. Hazy orange/amber color with a medium sized off white head that quickly dissipated. Sweet and spicy aroma of cloves, banana, honey and orange marmalade. Flavor was way too sweet for my tastes. Lots of honey, some bubblegum, light clove and some tropical fruits. Alcohol is very apparent, but not overpowering. Drinkable, but not overly enjoyable.

6/26/2010. From bottle. Deep amber color with a white head. Caramel, sugar, spice, light fruit and boozy aromas. Sweet caramel flavors, but somewhat lacking balance.

2.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
A: pours burnt caramel, central opacity bordered with golden hues. No indications of carbonation. Looks like Tomme mighta helped with this one...
S: Cool. Smells like Bananas Foster and some nougat. Intriguing.
T: Cola, flat cola flavor. Some slight weed ash, mixed with more hints of banana. After taste is unconventionally infantile: as in, reminds me of diapers out of the package.
M: Nearly flat and relatively thick feeling. Sticky and I try not to get much on my lips as the residual sugars are certainly daunting.
O: I don’t really care for this. The nose is awesome, but the flavor is a letdown. Mouthfeel is also very poor.
Serving type: bottle

12oz bottle from who knows where. Been siting in a trunk for a few years. Hazy brown pour with a thin off-white. Aroma is brown sugar, bread and spice. Tastes are sweet sugary, honey, roasted malts, citrus, spices. Boozy. Lots happening, but not my bag - too sweet.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cracked a bottle of this for the first time in awhile. Poured a dark hazy brown, smelled strongly of honey and surprisingly boozy given its age. Definitely sme brown sugar and a sharp almost brandy-like aftertaste.

Aroma of bananas foster, sugar and slight wheat. Pours light red with foamy film. Taste is sweet banana, brown sugar, and rum. Delicious.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2013.01.11 - Weyerbacher Fourteen (Anniversary 2009) - 12oz bottle in goblet. Pours a cloudy caramel or raisin medium dark tan. Almost no carbonation but there is a trace ring that laces a bit and a tiny island cap in center. Holding up to light shows some bubbles feeding from bottom. Aroma is raisin-y sweetness, reminding me of DFH Raison Dâ€™Extra. Very close whiff has a bit of starchiness. Candy sugar perhaps. Taste. Hmmm. Hard to describe honestly. I honestly donâ€™t get a definitive "wheat", but it is 3 years old at this point and I donâ€™t drink a lot of wheat stuff. Basically a bit of medicinal alcohol bite with some "tang" on the front end. Doesnâ€™t really change, just fades away. Mouthfeel is pretty dense and full but not really creamy. Mild to little carbonation. Like I said, I donâ€™t really get wheat from this at this point. Itâ€™s more like a cross of DFH Raison Dâ€™Extra and a barleywine / old ale like North Coast Old Stock Ale to my taste/experience. Aroma 6/10, Appearance 4/5, Taste 7/10, Palate 4/5, Overall 15/20

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle from Knightly Spirits in Orlando. Slightly murky orange-amber pour with a small soapy head. This one is bizarre, but interesting. Aroma is wheat, sweet caramel, and hot booze. There’s a little honey in here too. Very hot alcohol on the taste - feels in excess of the stated 11.8% - plus some candied sugar and maybe peppermint (or maybe that’s just the booze). Doesn’t look like a beast, but it sure tastes like it.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy and somewhat bubbly amber color with a moderate head. A lot of wheat and grain notes in the nose. A little sweet with some hints of alcohol to it.
