Bottle shared from AA. Big malty, caramel flavors stand out but nice piney, juicy hops match well. I was pretty lit by this point, but I remember the heavy body. Solid.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear dark amber pour, thin tan head. Malt and hops in a tug of war for the nose. Bittersweet. Middle is big roasted malt footprint, sweet caramel notes, toffee lurking at the edges. Finish leans sweet, but there is still some piney kick there.

Bottle to glass. Deep murky red with white head. Pine, earthy malt, bread, caramel, and some sort of light fruit I can’t quite put my finger on. Persimmons, maybe? Oily mouthfeel, bitter finish, and pretty heavy. One to enjoy slowly.
