750ml from Sam’s, Durham. Thought I’d try this one, given the deep discount. Darkish copper/brown pour, well carbonated but not too distinctive or impressive an appearance. Nose of slightly ripe yeast, prominent malts, and a bit of allspice. Taste was heavy on the sweets n beets for sure, with modest spice and hops in there too, particularly on the finish. Something about it seemed just a bit off to me, perhaps because of that weird vegetal tartness as with their other beers I’ve tried so far.

6oz pour at Churchkeys D.C. Pour is a murky brownish with a small white head. Aroma is some apple cider and vinegar. Flavor kinda redeems itself. A nice toffee showing itself first then comes a nice raisin and dark fruit. Finish has some fruit and brown sugar.
