3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Could be the best beer that Bitter Root does. Very nice pour out of the bottle. Decent head, with nice sweet malt up front. Hops are there, and it finishes with a strong alcohol taste. Like Kaya said, will be even better in March.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Celebrator-type, deep brown colour. Kind of syrupy and harsh. It could use some time in the cellar, but still not too bad. Alcoholic/hoppy aroma. Sweet and malty to start with molasses and then some bitter hops before a very warming finish. It definitely needs to mellow and blend a bit. It’s too harsh when young.

The aroma is dry with herbal notes. it is a clear amber color in the glass. The flavor is sour and kind of caustic on the palate.

Big wollap on the back of tongue. Dissapates quickly, dry finish. Beautiful color, laced the side of glass. I’m getting licorice, though, which detracts.
