Randy's Christmas Ale Tasting Notes

So, Randy's Christmas Ale has been in the cooler for three weeks,and I poured some the other night.

Appearance (0-3): Pours up a hazy, dark brown with a thin tan head.  2 Points

Aroma/Bouquet (0-4): Notes of orange, chocolate. 3 points

Taste (0-10): Hard to describe. Starts off slightly sweet , with chocolate in the middle and spice in the finish.  Generally, there is an overall sweetness.   No hops detected.  Medium mouthfeel.  This will kick your ass. 7 points.

Overall Impression (0-3): I wasn't sure what to expect from this recipe, but it does taste like Christmas!. Having never tried chocolate liqueur or triple sec, I was afraid this would be super sweet.  I should be more concerned about the alcohol content, but didn't have clue how to calculate it.  3 points

Total: 16 points
