4/5 rDev -3.8%
Amberish pour capped by a finger of persistent light tan foam that laces up. Smells of caramels, biscuits, light molasses, pale and sweet malts. Nice. Tastes of caramel, doughy, bourbon elements. Smooth and nice balance here from hop, so the sweetness isn't overwhelming at all. Complexity increases as it warms. Here is dark fruit. This is almost a barleywine. Alcohol announces it's presence, but it works well, it's warming in this package. Medium bodied medium carbonation. This one isn't meant to gulp down. Sip and enjoy the complexity that emerges.

4.2/5 rDev +1%
Thick single finger head with excellent lacing and retention on a murky deep orange with an odd sea foam green hue body. Aroma is fairly boozy alerting you to the flavor with notes of apricot, molasses, brown sugar and wood. Flavor is initially fairly boozy but lightens up as enjoyed and as it warmed a bit with notes of apricot, pine, cherry, candied orange on an earthy and woody caramel malt base. A very nice memorable and complex beer.

4.3/5 rDev +3.4%
Appearance - rich deep caramel red coloring. A thin head that surprisingly stays a while.
Smell - lots and lots of malts here with a subtle sweetness as well.
Taste - very forward with the malts, as expected at 11%. You can taste the booze for sure, but the nice bittering flavor as it leaves your mouth hides some of that strong booze.
Mouthfeel - nice and smooth with very little carbonation
Overall - they took it to 11 for sure and succeeded! Nice balance for such a strong beer!
