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: 5.16%

Color: Cloudy golden/orange with a nice thick head.

Nose is full of sweet malt and a grainy background. Much of the same on the flavor a nice sweet maltiness with a bitterness on the back of the tongue. Nice round flavors that do not over power.

Recommendation: Great session beer seek it out.

Mild malt but had to work hard at finding that, not much there. No strong flavors either a light roast background and a metallic flavor on the sides of the tongue. Dark beer with no strong or even easily found flavors and smells.

Recommendation: Worth a try if nothing else sounds good.

Nose full of hops with a malt that barely makes it through.  Evergreen hops that give the beer a mild bitterness with a creamy mouth feel and back notes of a grainy malt.
