On draft at the Bistro Barrel fest. This one pours orange with an off white head. The aroma has some oak and tropical fruit. The flavor is mildly sweet with notes of tropical fruit, molasses, oak and definitely some pea soup in the background. This borders on not working, but it does. I liked it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Rattle’n’Hum Bear Republic event. A sweet and grainy barleywine-type brew, with a little wild funk. Sweet, fruity aroma, a warm finish, and some dry oak. Eccentric stuff, but interesting for sure.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Lots going on in this tawny brew. Gives impression of brandy with it’s fruitiness, but there’s no brandy. Oaky, sweet smelling. Hints of peat make their way into the aroma and flavor, but just hints. This is a malty barreled sweet brew, though not overly sweet or hot, and with a unique flavor."
