3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle served in a shaker- poured transparent maroon, copper crossbred color, foamy one finger head formed and laced nicely upon the vessel. Low carbonation, aroma of pine, caramel, and some darkened fruit. Hits the mouth with a light body, malt is very restrained but it still retains flavor in the form of fruit esters and some light caramel, finish has some acidity to it, finish is firm, almost pillowy in feel. Alot better than the crap I just had!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a deep amber red with a stingy off white head. Fresh aroma: caramel, bread, nuts, grassy hops, dough, some leather, nice. Taste eventually balances out. Sweet malt and bitter then sour/umami. Medium body, creamy, average carbonation, long finish, bitter. My favorite offering from this crew.
