3.9/5  rDev +7.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

from a pretty recent batch of this stuff from todays date 11-26-11;

A: Pours a sort of wild strawberry muddy brown pale violet color with a distinguished, very thinly cut ginger colored with decent retention and good lacing.

S: subdued ginger notes and cane sugar on the cane.
an afterthought of wintergreen.

T: Almost at the same time, sweet brown sugar cane slowly fills the mouth right next to sliced ginger (the head). A whisper of ripe red fruit over the middle, and finishing with a very clean sort of halfway chewed double mint gum, or a mild citrus/wintergreen if you prefer. Not impressive depth of flavor or boldness.

M: latte froth.

O: very quaffable but not all that outstanding in expression of flavor. Not worth the price, these beers have become very expensive in the last two years.

3.76/5  rDev +3.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

(bottle code RG.13.12 - poured into a tall Unibroue tulip)

A: tall, gooey-spongy foam to start... somewhat cloudy, dark caramel color - looks like liquified caramel in the process of cooling off dry...

S: browned, dry caramel overtone... old, candied ginger

T: heavy malt foundation, malty ginger beer, herbal bitterness in the finish... powdered ginger and grain-husky bitterness lingers... tiny hint of spicy alcohol

M: fatty-round... thinnish, chewy-gooey viscosity... booze enhances the notably dry finish

O: caramel-y malt and powdered ginger are core to the taste here... it appears that it could be a goopy mess, however, the flavors seem to have decent balance and it thankfully ends up surprisingly dry... if you dig malt and ginger anything, this is a good one
