ABV: 9%

Color: Dark amber

A great sweet caramel nose with a hint of hops in the background.  A slight sweetness that breaks into a malty grainy flavor that leaves a slight bitterness and yeasty aftertaste.  A nice higher alcohol beer that does not have any alcohol warmness.

Recommendation: Get it while you can.

Rating: 9/10

ABV: 10.5%

Color:  A nice cloudy dark golden.

A rich hoppy nose with notes of malt on the nose.  A sweet malt, a nice smooth bitterness and a warm alcohol.  This is a good sipping beer something that I would not recommend for the summer.

Recommendation: If you find it give it a try.

Rating: 7/10

Wow the nose is garlic and basil with hints of malt, horrible smell.  A smooth malty front with a hint of basil and an after taste of garlic that just makes this fall apart.  The garlic gets stronger and stronger after swallowed a complete turn off with everything else.  The smell is so disjointed it makes it taste worse then it really is but even that isn’t much.

Recommendation: Pass it up not worth drinking.

Color: Copper

A great balance of hops, citrus and sweet malt on the nose.  Starts off with hops and malt with a hint of grape with a mild sweetness on the tongue.  Interesting brew that has an interesting all around flavor.

Recommendation: Get it while you can.
