3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
[Bottle] Pours deep red with a small white head. Aroma is weird. Pistachio and stale cigarette smoke. Well, hopefully that will improve as it warms. After warming, the aroma has changed, but not improved. Now I mainly get musty, mildew scents. Not good. After significant warming (>1 hour), the unpleasant aromas fade, and are replaced by a vaguely sweet (light cinnamon and apple at times) and malty smell. Pretty muted, but at least it isnít bad. The taste is okay, and better than the aroma. Warming definitely improves this aspect of the beer as well. A little caramel popcorn and hardtack and a really pleasant finish. Really love that malt profile in the finish. Good mouthfeel, long finish. Overall, a weird beer that was verging on being a drainpour when cold, but that drastically improved after letting it sit for over an hour. In fact, I donít know that I have ever had a beer make such a drastic change as this one did with significant warming. Yet another reason to enjoy an entire bottle over an extended period of time rather than just tick a small sample over the course of a few minutes. My overall score is reflective more of the warmed beer than the cold one, which I probably was going to give in the high 1ís to low 2ís.
