On tap at the brewery Underground Bluz.
Appearance - Beautiful, sparkling clear ruby brew. Small, creamy, khaki-colored head. Quicly dissipating. Thick and oily in the glass.
Aroma - Rich and malty. Notes of alcohol, caramel, prune and raisins.
Taste - Hearty, rich and sweet with loads of raisins, light molasses, caramel and candy sugar. Perfectly bittered for balance.
Palate - Full-bodied with a super heavy, oily mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Lengthy, bittersweet finish. Excellent! Reminiscent of Dogfish Head Raison D’ Etre.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nose is full of dried fruit and cherry. Some grape. Light sherry. Deep red to brown with a small off white head. Taste is slightly sweet with a moderately to highly watery mouthfeel. Not necessarily oxidized but just flat and thin in malt presence. A shame since it smells so good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Poured clear amber -- very attractive color. Aroma is mild but nice. Flavor is smooth but a little bland all-around. Leaves you a dry, sour aftertaste. Not bad and very drinkable, but missing something...
Had it with some spicy hummus -- balanced well!!!

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The beer pours a clear brownish red with a medium off-white head, and the aroma blends roasted malts, caramel, lager yeast, slight hints of coffee, and slight hints of toffee. The taste is quite umami, slightly sweet, and a touch sour, and the aftertaste is malty, hearty, and slightly sweet without overpowering the tongue. The palate has a soft carbonation, thick texture, and a medium body.
