3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
clear dark blood red, frothy tan head that collapses into a whispy head and bits of lace, light sweet fruity malt aroma obscured by earthy hops, rich malt flavor, nice chocolate character, a fair amount of hop flavor followed by a light bitter finish, adding the yeast gives a nice added complexity with a yeast and raison notes in the aroma and a bready character in the flavor plus brings out rich ripe fruit to make the initial hops fade, blending in the yeast and letting it warm is the secret to this beer
Aroma: 6/10; Appearance: 7/10; Flavor: 7/10; Palate: 6/10; Overall: 14/20

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown; nice persistent head. Aroma is thin but pleasant, some chocolate, quite fresh (some coriander maybe). In the outjit is a bit watery, there is some chocolate (though not much intense) and just a touch of smoothness in the palate. Drinkable, without defects but also not particularly remarkable.
