3.28/5  rDev -5.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance- Not impressed with the head retention or lacing. Color is a dark, deep brown.
Smell- Nutty and raisiny.
Taste- Very toffee-like and raisin character to it.
Mouthfeel- Straight up medium.
Overall- Alright, I am revisiting this one for a third time so it is absolutely drinkable. The reason I am giving it a 5/10 is as follows: It is in a class of it's own being a blend of three different classes of ale. I'm betting the other beers that make this one up are better off drank straight than being combined into this concoction of a brew. I can drink it, but that's not saying too much. Cheers to those who do.

3.43/5  rDev -0.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

22 oz. bottle purchases several months ago at the Foggy Bottom/West End Trader Joe's in Washington D.C., unknown bottling date, poured into my FFF Teku glass, drank 9/30-10/1/13 over an hour:

A: 2/3 - deep amber-brown, minimal clarity, pours thickly with a rocky tannish head that subsides into a glass lacing

S: 8/12 - very muted aroma but, on warming, there are faint toffee, caramel and alcohol notes

T: 13/20 - on the anterior tongue, there's a slight bitterness that quickly gives way to middle-of-the- mouth malt flavors that accompany the aroma --> toffee, caramel dried fruit (figs and dates especially); unfortunately, the sweetness is too cloying/overbearing for me suggesting either underattenuation or too high mash T; no diacetyl, no DMS or other off-flavors; 10-15 second aftertaste is mostly a turn-off

M: 3/5 - moderate bodied; appropriate carbonation for style; subtle booze for 8.5% ABV

O: 6/10 - I don't want to lambast this beer given it's supreme affordability but the cloying sweetness was not my speed; however, for $3-4 at your local Trader Joe's, it's hard to pass up at least once, but I doubt that I'll be returning for the 2014 iteration unless it's something different and/or special

TOTAL = 32/50

3.41/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Pours a deep ruby-brown, with a thick, foamy head of off-white bubbles. Lace is thin and wispy but present.

Nose is malty and rich right off the bat. There's accents of maple syrup, dried and candied fruit, and toffee.

Taste is rather sweet and echoes the above. I get more toffee and candied fruit alongside a strong alcohol presence. This is certainly a big beer that's best to share.

A great value (bomber was around $3 at Trader Joe's in Chicago), but not one I'd dare to drink solo again!

Enjoyed this bottle from a standard pint glass.

A: Pours a dark brown hue with a thin white head that quickly dissipates into a wispy lace.

S: Strong malty alcoholic aroma.

T: Tart and sweet malt up front followed caramel background.

M: full body and medium carbonation.

O: Decent brew – good flavors and aromas.
