4.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Hint of caramel and sherry aroma. Little to no light tan head. Beautiful copper/orange color. Taste is sweet toffee caramel on the front with a nice bitter finish. Some warming booziness and man this is fantastic. Well done.
Minnesota Trip Beer #89. Keg at the brewery, 5/9/16. Clear copper, large creamy tan head, good retention. Aroma of toffee, caramel, citrus, booze. The taste is toffee, caramel, booze. Medium bodied, hot. commonmac (1340) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 7, 2016
On tap at the source with commonshawn and double T’s. Snifter glass. Very little off white head. A ruby/copper/deep amber colored effort. Aroma is malty and very sweet. Bubblegum, sugary, caramel. Taste follows suit with the ever present high alcohol content mixing with a healthy dose of sugary sweetness. Dark fruit like raisin and plum coming into play. Really hard to get passed the sweetness of this effort. It’s too much. Finish reminds you it’s a 13% type of beer with a bourbon feel. I’ll patiently sip on this slowly. commonshawn (1326) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 7, 2016
Tap at brewery with commonmac. Tulip. Mahogany with small almost no white head. Boozy dark fruit nose. Oily resin mouthfeel. Very sweet, high alcohol, and warming. Ton of sugar. A bit of dark fruit. Sweet and syrupy beer that is anything but patient. weihenweizen (4129) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JAN 30, 2016

Bottle... Pours clear and new penny-copper with a few temporary bubbles, but no lasting head. The aroma features wildflower honey and cotton candy with a light ration of tea biscuits. Full-bodied with a syrupy mouthfeel and tickling carbonation. WTF is going on with the flavor? Huge metallic bitterness. Didn’t smell that one coming. Nasty. God, I hate American-style barley wines. This is exceptionally bitter and bad. Painful. Go away. Get off my lawn. cbfobes (2891) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - AUG 9, 2015
On tap at 2015 GTMW, pours a dark amber copper with pretty much no head at all, the aroma has a lot of dark fruit and sweetness, the flavor has a very sweet front end with the dark fruit and plum mixes well with the malt and sweetness, the abv isn’t hidden really at all, syrupy mouthfeel, not bad. 50belair (3682) - Florida, USA - MAR 17, 2015
Bottle. Amber pour with a white head. Malty aromas. Big malty presence upfront that is succumbed by the huge hoppy finish. Average body and mouthfeel. ChrisSc (465) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 13, 2015
