3.95/5 rDev +3.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5
Served in 10 oz chalice glass
Appearance – Served a deep red nearly brown color with a nice billowy off white head. The head faded slowly giving a nice bit of lacing.
Smell – The smell is a nice mix of dried fruit and hoppiness. The hops, which really are most prevalent upfront in the nose, are mainly pine in nature with some earthy and floral hop aromas. The fruit, largely composed of cherry, raisin and prune, then comes more toward the middle and end of the aroma. It’s a nice balance between sweet and hoppy.
Taste – A bit of hoppiness is the first thing to be detected. A bit more subtle then the nose would suggest, with pine and an ever so light citrus. A sweeter flavors mixed with a roasted malty flavor enter toward the middle of the taste; with the sweet a mix of dark dried fruits. While the hops that are present initially begin to fade the dried fruit flavor comes in making up for their loss. A nice transition.
Mouthfeel – A nice thicker feel to the body, which coats the mouth while drinking. The thickness seems to make it more bock or stout like. The only problem is a little bit of an overcarbonation for the thickness of the body. The body is soothing while the carbonation is more invigorating. The two competing with each other leaves something to be desired in the mouthfeel.
Overall - It is an interesting beer. Moderately hoppy with some nice fruit flavors. The only real complaint is a lack of complementation in the mouthfeel, but otherwise however it is quite a good brew.

A: Pours a deep ruby red with a light mocha head.
S: Dark fruits and light, but not citric fruits in the nose.
T: Lemon, some resiny pine, dark fruits to start followed by bready malt in the finish. Interesting. Definitely different from English or American barleywines.
M: Full bodied and smooth.
O: Worth a try. It's a good beer, and if nothing else, it's interesting. I've tasted few beers that taste quite like this.

3.75/5 rDev -1.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
A perfectly suitable ESB, if on the hoppier side and perhaps just a tad thin in the mouth. You do get the classic biscuity notes, and maybe not so much of the copper tinge you'll often find in the English ones. A bit sharper in the hops department, but not overly so. The only real problem here is the strength- it doesn't really add anything to the experience here but some alcohol- both in flavor and in strength. Really, why bother?

3.9/5 rDev +2.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
Grabbed a single for a very reasonable price. Ran upstairs with the can in my coat pocket. It exploded when I opened it.
Pours foggy brown with some orange. Minimal head and lacing.
Nose is a big sweet malt bomb. Loads of caramel, candied fruit, heavy syrup, stone fruits, a bit of piney hops.
Lots of sweetness in taste. Dark fruits (dates), some woody character, alcohol, floral hoppy notes, mild bitterness.
Big body, nearly syrupy with the sweetness. Low carbonation.
A tasty brew overall. Plenty of strength and sweetness with a full body to stand on.
