3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark orange and oak colored pour with a small sandy head. Pretty one dimensional with hot alcohol, toffee, mild wood, and subtle cherry. Just not terribly good.

Hazy caramel orange tan in color... Aroma of light toasty oak... Flavor is caramel, toffee, with fruity notes of cherry, and hops on the palate... Better than the bourbon version, spices on finish but overall more balanced than the others... Solid

Smells excellent. Orange zest and oak. Very good. Rich and flavorful, with a good dry hop finish. Itís oaky and fruity together. Goes down very smoothly. First cigar city beer is a good one.

Growler thanks to Toby. Pours out copper topped with a long lasting head. Nose is booze sweetness malts and wood. Taste oak booze malts and a nasty after taste. Almost a footbalm in my book.

Pours ruby red with a finger of foamy white head. Nice caramel malt aroma with some fruit and a heavy dose of oak. Very pleasing smooth and sweet oaky flavor. Iíve never had an old-fashioned, but for I feel that this is what they should taste like. Does a great job camouflaging its alcohol content. I could easily drink more of this than I should.

On tap at Aces and Ales. Brownish orange with a nice white foam. Oak, orange, and almond on the nose. Good body and lively carbonation. Toasted caramel flavors. Oak is present. Smooth finish.

Bomber. Aroma is nice and oaky, imparting toasted coconut, vanilla. I also get orange, lemon. Pours slightly hazy amber with a medium beige head with good retention; leaves some lace. Taste is strong in oak, oranges. Iím not getting the lemons or cherries. I definitely see the relationship to an Old Fashioned cocktail. Itís very similar in flavor, but more palatable (Iím not a big fan of the cocktail). Mouthfeel is creamy, body seems a little too thin for a beer of this caliber. I really like this. I think itís underrated on here. Iím looking forward to the next two.

Have already tried the rye whiskey version. This one is great as well! More of the base malt flavor comes through due to no spirit infusion, and the base malt is ever so slightly sweet and caramely. The new wood barrels give a nice woody and smokey taste. Looking forward to the last of the trio now. A-

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Reddish Brown in color, hazy with a thin head. This was a big beer with very light touches of oak. I was hoping for more. Light other spices this beer just did not hit the mark. Way too spendy. Too many flavors to combine.

On tap at City Beer, SF. Hazy red shade. Aroma offers a hint of fruit and vanilla. Sticky, sugary red fruit taste. Thereís a hint of oak present but itís not an overt or overpowering factor by any means. Quite tasty.
