2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A- Caramel, subtle pine, malty.
A- Dark amber red color, cloudy liquid, off white head.
T- Caramel, pine, herbs, malty, slightly bitter.
P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, slightly bitter finish.
O- Iíd guess this is about as big of a beer as Iíve had from a can yet. I was pleased with the heaps of caramel I got on the nose and even in the taste. And a good caramel, not the burnt caramel kind. The pine and bitterness crept in as it warmed.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Wynkoop. Colour...dark, garnet-amber with a thin ecru head. Nose...fairly hoppy with some boiled sweets and field dust. Palate...frothy, very malt and quite hoppy with dark fruits and dust coated hop cones. The back palate and finish are very bitter and semi cloying. Not a wide range of flavours but a solid impy red.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can from Hazelís beverage mart. Pours deep red with an inch of white foam that fades pretty quickly. It leaves behind a lot of lacing. a bit of pine on the nose. a little bit of pine on the tongue but itís faint. It hides its alcohol fairly well but itís a bit boring considering the style.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
A- a deep reddish-amber with a thick, mouse-like light khacki head with long retention
S- Deep layers of sweet caramely malt with hints of fruityness similar to raisins, dates and figs comingle with the layered earthy, spicy and citric hop notes.
T- surprisingly hoppy considering the nose. Dark, fruitbread like notes. Slight caramely, malt sweetness, is balanced out by the sweet, fruity citrusy notes offered by the hops
M/F- a smooth medium boddied ale that has found a way to use hops as a major player without abusiing the palate, instead offering bittsrness in the long, dry finish.
