3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draught. Pours a clear mahogany, with a small white head that quickly fades. Nose is raisins, figs, and bread. Taste is boozy dark fruit with a cloying aftertaste. A decent exemplar of the style, but nothing outstanding. On the boozy side.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a pale amber gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma a bit of citrus and plastic with sweet grains and caramel underlying. Flavor has an odd combination of earthy citrus and caramel with resin and bread in the finish.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Un-aged 16.9 oz bottle into a New Belgium globe glass: Amber brown iced- tea color with about an inch of tight, tan, orange hued head that dissipated after a couple of minutes, leaving lace. Boozy, earthy aroma with funky dried apricot, intense caramel and toffee, rum notes coming out after some warming. Sweet and toasty flavor, bread crust, vanilla, syrupy caramel. The hops seemed more pronounced fresh from the fridge. Good carb lends to a creamy mouthfeel and it holds up well at room temp. Full-bodied; acidic hoppyness fades into bourbon qualities. Good stuff really.
