3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Despite, or perhaps correlated with, this bottle being a gusher, this beer looked great. Big ass lively even creamy head with a crystal clear reddish orange hued body. Became a bit cloudy when I pushed the pouring thing. Toasty biscuity malt nose. Subtle. A bit creamy. A hint of fruit. Not awe inspiring, but not bad. A full lively mouth. Small even bubbles. The flavors are pretty much in step with the nose. Big toasty biscuit malt. Bread. A good bit of fruit. Some alcohol sneaks out. A bit of tannic stuff going on. The style seems to support less alcohol usually, so it’s a it odd here. Significant hops, floral. A bit of acidity. Not a huge fan, but not a terrible beer either. Interesting at least.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a slightly hazy copper with a small layer of foam and some minimal lace. Aroma of pennies, diacetyl, and amber malt. Tastes oddly sweet - almost sickeningly so at first, but then the hops kick in and attempt to balance the finish. Lots of diacetyl, some alcohol. Thin creamy body, low carb. Not a fan.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle served in a tulip. The active yeast urges the foam out of the bottle even before I had a chance to put it in the glass. Pours murky amber-brown with a short head that stays on top as a thin film. Medium sweet aroma of multiple dark fruits, toffee, soy, and bread. The flavor is not as sweet as the aroma suggests. Medium body, thick-oily texture, fizzy carbonation, and a somewhat fruity, moderately dry finish.

Poured from 330mL bottle. Hazy orangish brown with full off-white head. Aroma of molasses, bready malt, dark fruits - figs, plum. Light taste, a little flat. Caramel and sweet roasted malts. A little lacking on the finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle. Gushes out of the bottle. Bright amber in color with a little haze and a big slightly off-white head that leaves a little lace. Brown sugary malt and dandelions on the nose with a little underlying fruit and a hint of funk. Lively effervescence on the palate with that big brown sugar/caramel taste and a slight sweetness with some fruit esters through the middle and no real hint at the alcohol until the warming finish kicks in.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clouded ruby brown with minimal tan head. Nose is sugary, cherry, with a touch of wood. Flavor is smooth with a tuch of wood somewhere in there and a slight bit of caramelized sugar. Feel is great. Nice effervescence and bubbly on the tongue. Drinkable, yes. Quite good and worth going to...maybe worth going to again.
