3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Argilla.. Looks and smells good... Nice murkey brown, red tint to it. Small head. Nose of dark fruits, raisons, plums, big malt presence. Taste is nice. Malty, raisons, plums, sweetness. The alcohol is hidden well and drinks very nicely. The body is the only knock I have on this beer. Was expecting more full bodied or rich.. This one is thin for a quad. Overall. Decent

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at brewpub. Pours a slightly cloudy brown color with a small tan head. Aroma of dark fruits, roasted malts and a touch boozy. Taste is very malt forward with a nice dark fruit sweetness of raisins and plums. The alcohol is very subtle and is much lighter than the aroma would suggest. Light to medium body with very little carbonation, thin and flat.
