2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
21St December 2008. Clear dark brown beer. Malty but balanced with a bitter hop finish. Smooth palate offset by a little spice. Not bad.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark brown color; small head. Average caramel aroma, and light spices. Dark caramel flavor, lean body; the final is disturbing: too much roasted malt and ashes, but, mostly, too bitter. It’s not pleasant.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Underrated amongst NW barley wines. Probably too subtle for all those hopheads.

On tap @ Porkys Pizza Palace. Amber pour with a small off-white head. Nose is sweet and cola-like. Nuts, caramel, toffee, and some dark fruits. Flavor is quite sweet as well. Lots of cola, nuts, caramel, and toffee. Kind of a weird iron flavor to it. Meh.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of lightly roasted caramel. Mahogany color with a respectable beige head. Rather thin in body with very mild carbonation. LIghtly spiced sweet caramel witha little bitterness. The finish seems a bit vanilla, a bit caramel, but the bitter builds enough to help out. Complex fruit flavors? Maybe next time. It is a very good ale. Seriously.
