3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 14/20
Experienced at the Tap Room. A psychedelic beer experience. Brett? big wine barrel, tart tart, cherry. Lots of malt to take down the acidity. The tannic wine dominates. Very dark brown to black, some head and lace. This is tannic, lactic, some astringency. A sipper at best in drinkability. A lot of ideas here. Medium bodied. A hint of chocolate malt and vanilla.
Brewers’ notes: proprietary Scottish Ale Yeast, along with Somoma County wild bacteria. Nugget and Liberty hops; IBU below 25. A blend of several dark ales.
