2.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is woody and yeasty, almost a touch of sour. Appearance is muddy brown. Deep malt flavor with yeasty finish with a touch of funk. Complexity is all in the yeast. Finishes a bit sour. Overall pretty good but not what I was expecting and would not seek out.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from a southern season. Pours brown with half an inch of khaki head. A bit of bread on the nose. You do get the alcohol on the tongue. Kind of doughy on the tongue. Finish lingers a bit. Solid but not spectacular.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - 750ml. Beautiful hazy caramel body with a thin off-white foamy head. Fresh, complex malty/hoppy aroma with fruity (mainly orange), herbal, and flowery hints. Taste is very well balanced and relatively robust. It carries fruity, yeasty, and caramel notes. Ends with a decent, warming bittersweet finish. Very enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours clear dark amber with a medium, frothy and fizzy off-white head, medium-short retention with fair to good lacing. Aroma is golden raisins, dates, and light fig notes with toast, bread, and caramel malt with faint hops. There is some "cellar" character to the beer, with faint notes of age, oak, and spices (nutmeg). Flavor is caramel, cookie, and toasted malt, fruity and spicy Belgian yeast esters, light oak notes and hop bitterness with a dry, lightly spicy finish. Medium body and carbonation.
