Draft - Dark sugars, raisin and yeast. Dark amber with a very small white head. Roast malts, toffee and nutty. Tastes like a Belgian dark but lighter with nutty notes.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampler at westside location. Cask ale, so little head and low carbonation. Boozy aroma - brandy and dark ripe fruit. Complex taste with the booze, oak, and dark fruit. Oily mouthfeel. Cool beer; pretty high Abv - bartender said 12-13%, so no pint for me since I need to drive tonight (and this wasn’t my first!). Maybe next time.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a nearly opaque mahogany with a pale buff head. Strong malty aroma had a firm fruity undertone - all kinds of fruit! Bold, rich flavor has malty, plum, berry, peach, pear and horehound notes - quite sweet but not at all cloying. Almost like tutti frutti juice with a kick! Mouthfeel is thick and syrupy,though a tad lacking in the fizz department. Apparently an homage to a Grateful Dead tour. Why not to the first Star Wars movie?
