4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear dark copper with a nice thick creamy tan head. The aroma is quite sweet. I pick up toffee, caramel, and roasted malts. The flavor is dark roasted malts, brown sugar, and some alcohol but very mild. There is some chocolate I pick up as well and not much hop bitterness or notes. The mouth feel is medium and for 7.2 abv the drink ability is quite high.

Bottle. Clear brown pour with an off-white head. Aroma is quite roasty with some dark fruit. Taste is bitter and roasty with some sweet fruit - nicely balanced and tasty for the style.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
This beer is OK. It really isn’t anything special, and it’s probably the least of the Ninkasi beers I’ve had so far. It’s just boring. It pours amber/brown with average carbonation and foam. The aroma is slightly sweet and malty. The flavor is also slightly malty, slightly sweet... just slight in general. Meh.

Bottled. Confused as to what this was supposed to be. Brown pour, some malts, or caramel or fruit or something

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle pours a dark brown you can see right through with a two finger puffy beige head and thick sticky lacing. Aroma is rust and wet dirt. Flavor is primarily burnt toast, initially sweet with a strong bitter finish. Neither pleasant nor unpleasant, but is not something I’d buy again.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours clear dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, pine, alcohol. Taste of sweet caramel, dark malt, candied cherries, a little alcohol in the finish. The label doesn’t say ’Dark Double Alt’ but after seeing the name here I think that is an accurate description. A good winter beer with no spices or crap like that.

Spicy and rich nose with walnuts and spiced dark fruit. Dry and slightly bitter taste. It’s good, a straight bold flavor without any huge surprises.
