3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle... Blazer’s low-key O-Town Throwdown 2012... Pours nearly black with no head. The aroma is comprised of dark fruits - mainly dried plum and raisin- but there’s some black cherry here as well. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and nearly no carbonation. The flavor is tart, but chocolaty and provides sour cherries and dried plums. Tart, prune finish. I could have lived without all the dried plum in this one, but it’s still enjoyable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Poured near black and quite still. It was hard to get past sour oak and cherries in the aroma department.. some vanilla and tobacco were deep down, as well as dark chocolate as it warmed.. interesting, but not necessarily enticing. The flavor was sour as expected, with cherries, oak, and dark fruit skins leading.. cocoa and licorice supported.. spicy, sour, very oaky finish. Medium-bodied with almost no perceptible carbonation on the palate.. the sourness at least hid the boozage well.. too barrel-ly and funky for my liking.
