Toasty, lemon citrus hop aroma (SIP?), soft, bready grain w/ slight bitter fin. Bit o body for session. Easy drinking and damn tasty.
Hell of a half time beer. Maple, roast coffee, bourbon aroma, thick syrupy hot sweet bourbon malts. Hot, hot, heat. Prime for aging Earned the Brew Bowl 50 badge!
Smells of acidic/green pepper coffee, creamy maple/brown sugar/bitter cocoa, coffee roast, fin is dry Irish stout type. Decent
Plum/dark fruits, cocoa, peat aroma, drinks roasty, mild ash, molasses, caramel. Some tangy, almost vinous quality. Different take on a RIS. Earned the Imperial Czar (Level 3) badge!
Burnt toffee aroma/taste. On the sweeter side (too sweet), some rasin. Has some quad-y elements, little nut. Ok beer, sub-par brown
Anise, brown sugar/molasses, char, red wine, ash, bourbon sweet, wood, dry fin. A complex beauty, 2015 drinks great fresh. Ripe for aging! Earned the Hopped Up (Level 18) badge!
Holy mango, peach, grapefruit peel aroma/taste, slick caramel, candied sweet. Fin is b-I-t-t-e-r. Lot of flav for a session. Not my style
Malty/honey sweet, but more stone fruit/peach in this year's batch. Bitterness grows, finishes dusty, bitter. Good as always

Toasty grain, esters, pine, lemon, bread, bitter grapefruit rind, grain finish. Mild sweet malt keeps from becoming too seltzery.
