look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a half-litre bottle into a brandy snifter.

A: Just over a finger of off-white, impressive head tops a tawny, unfiltered, opaque beer.

S: Rich caramel malts and hints of fruit are complemented by classically piney Americanesque hops. Smells more or less like a DIPA.

T: Aww, disappointing. It's pretty good, but faint-hearted and unimpressive. The hops are more much muted and herbal than anticipated (older bottle?). Still, I suppose there is something to be said for balance. A nutty, bready sweetness (think [good] fruitcake) is predominant before the bitterness rears up and intermingles through the aftertaste.

M: Firm and robust. Full-bodied and thick. Very nice.

O: I liked this beer, but I wouldn't recommend it or have another (unless it was guaranteed fresh). A bit of a disappointment from a great brewery.

Mostly clear amber with two fingers thick offwhite colored head, sticks around. Smell: orange, apricot, pine, mild earthiness, alcohol. Taste: pine, candied grapefruit peel, mild breadiness, alcohol hit. Medium-plus bodied, with a syrupy-cut-by-carbonation feel. Boozy for 8.5%, flavors muddied. It's okay, but not great.
