3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the Lucky Lab in Portland. Colour...slightly cloudy amber-brown with no head. Nose...dates, golden raisins and dried cots with caramel tailings. Palate...delicately frothy and focused with a distinct lean towards the hoppy toffee side. There’s a bitter aspect that is beyond the hops and seems more oaky and somewhat sappy but it does not deter from the overall balance of this treat!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aged and stored. From 2005 I think. Aroma of brown sugar and bitter hops. Reddish brown color. Flavor is a mix of christmas trees, sweet brown sugar, and sweet toasty malt. Obviously the hops have become a little subdued. Big, sweet, and damn drinkable. Pretty good stuff.
