3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark brown/copper with minimal head and lacing. Aroma of malts - sweet roasted with a slight prune hint. Taste is similar with a very malty front end - slight roasted and prune hues - a slight alcoholic flavor and a mild hop backend. Palate is pretty good. Overall, a fairly decent high-octane brew.
Brown with a diminished light tan head. Sweet malt scents with some mild fruit (prunes and plums) and a touch of dirt. Sweet start with some cherries and caramel. Some alcohol and toast. Burnt wood and ash in the finish and linger. A fireside sipper. Just don’t think too much about. 4/14
Aurelius (5371) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 2, 2015
A chemical smell that reminds me of plastic fishing worms, in addition to being earthy and tannic. Standard 12oz twistoff longneck. Bad label. Clear, very red beer. Chemical, boozy, woody, discombobulated. Medium body, alcoholic and alco-bitter finish. No love from Aurelius. ABC Liquors, Betton. PorterPounder (8073) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 11, 2015
Tallahassee, Fl - Market Square Liquors - 12 oz bottle. Slightly murky dark amber pour, light off-white head that clings to the edge of the glass. Aroma has some light vanilla accents, a touch of oak if you close your eyes and try really hard. Flavor is pleasant, some toffee, light vanilla, a touch of oak, some tannic notes in the back end. . Smooth mouthfeel. Bottle says 10% ABV - there is absolutely no way! jtclockwork (16688) - , New Jersey, USA - MAR 1, 2015
Draft. Pours orange gold. Nose and taste of oak, apple and grain alcohol. Medium body. starewich (170) - - JAN 29, 2015
Bronze colored, with unusual clarity for such darkness. Caramel, bockish, quite sour. Oily feel. 10% ABV and it shows, with the oak it’s like a beer with a shot or two of whiskey in it. Satisfying, if not otherwise impressive.

Aroma of oak, taste is nice and malty, some booze, its okay, but not that great, as the booze was very heavy. Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 28, 2014
Bottled. Poured clear, medium garnet with a short-lived off-white head. The aroma picked up lots of juicy fruits and berries with accents of oak and vanilla.. came across sweet, but enticing. The flavor found sweetened, almost candy-like fruity notes at the core, with dry oak and sweet vanilla laced throughout.. a touch tart and spicy over lots of residual berry and vanilla sweetness on the finish. Medium-bodied and a little sharper than I would’ve liked on the palate.. nice, creamy carbonation.. OK overall feel. I’d drink it again. Barnoloid (277) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 21, 2014
This beer absolutely took me by surprise. It has a depth and complexity that makes this an interesting beer at each sip and turn. Sweet but not too much so, there is a dark fruit undertone and a little oakiness that gives this a good rounded finish. zootfinster (220) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 21, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2014 I really like this beer. It’s new on the market. Berghoff beers used to be made by Heuber but recently they have been made by Stevens Point Brewery and made really well. This particular beer has become one of my very favorite of all beers. You can certainly taste the Belgian influence. They call it an english Strong ale but Ive never tasted any English beer like this. This is a malty yet refreshing high AVB ,10% beer. A friend gave me a bottle and I am a believer. rubbishystuff (2537) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 19, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2015 From Beer Temple. Thick malty dark brown beer. Metallic medicinal taste and wood. A decent backbone ruined by some strange flavors. Serving: Bottle
