3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma - Almost no aroma at all.
Appearance - Dark clear brown, light head
Taste - Good taste, just not enough of it.
Palate - a very light beer, despite the dark color; slightly dry finish
Overall - Too light a beer for me. It isn’t offensive, but doesn’t do anything for me...

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured form bottle a reddy brown with small tan head. Head receded to sides of glass quickly and there was little to no lacing, really just a ring were it was clinging to sides of glass. Aroma was sweet, roasted malts, caramel, a hint of raisin and dark fruit. Taste was malty with a bit of toffee, caramel that slightly bitters in finish. I heard some saying it was boring but after summers hop punch IPA’s followed by fall pumpkin pie beers this is a refreshing change of pace. A good simple beer.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
It pours with a large head. There are roasted aromas which are not overly strong. It is dark amber in color with a medium brown head. The carbonation is a bit strong and the malts aren’t overly favorable.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Transfer from BA -
Had on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – A light brown/dark red color with a bit of head formed upon reception that faded quite fast.
Smell – Some sweetness of sugar with a bit of nut and char aroma.
Taste – Nothing too overpowering here. Some Nuttiness and maltiness first meet the tongue followed shortly by a few sweet notes of chocolate and sugar fading away to a roasted nut flavor.
Mouthfeel – Relatively normal foe the abv. although a little lighter then would be expected for the winter style darker beer. Carbonation was just about right.
Overall – Nothing special here. Its worth a try, but not a beer I would pine for.

Really just tastes like an average brown, with an OK barley profile. Finishes with light bitterness. Some roast. Pours brown with OK head and lacing. Bottle.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Total Wine in Boca Raton, FL. 12oz pour into a snifter. Deep brown, nearly porter looking pour. Almost no head or lacing. Aroma of dark malts, spices, bread, sweet dark fruits. The aroma was very nice but the flavor was missing. You get the bread and dark malt, but the spice profile seemed to be missing as well as the candied sweetness. It was fairly underwhelming for a Weyerbacher. Medium body, light carbonation. Finish is rather bland and minty. Not sure what is going on with this one.

Bottle. Hazy reddish brown pour with a finger of off white head that leaves a nice lacing. Raisin, apricot, coffee, caramel, barley wine, spice. Spice carbonation initially. Medium body with a slightly sour finish. Refreshing beer
