Pours hazy copper color, with a 1-finger head that was somewhat cream-colored. Nutty malt aroma, with notes of candied fruit and maybe date. A touch of earthy yeast too. Full body, a touch syrupy, with an astringent dryness to the finish. Nutty malt flavor with earthy yeast beneath. Notes of fig and candied fruit too.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Murky medium brown with khaki head. Aroma has figs, toffee, burnt sugar and slight alcohol. Flavor is very similar, figgy, dark toffee, toast and slightly boozy. Lighter to medium body. Not bad, but lacks a certain depth.

Bottle from giant eagle gahanna. Nose is malty and clove. Smooth and appropriate bite. Sharp alcohol shine thru at times but otherwise balance is great and hides it. Banana notes provide some sugar to the mix. Would do again.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle best by November 19, 2016.
Glass: Fiddlehead teku.
Appearance: Odd sort of copper color with reddish hues almost coming off pink with floaties in suspension. The head is dense and light tan, has decent retention.
Aroma: Bready malts dominate, slightly smokey, with medicinal cherry phenols with some spicy phenols to match. Aroma is moderate in strength and doesn’t really entice.
Taste: A bit astringent, toasted malts prominent, with medicinal cherry coming through. Not a fan.
Palate: Medium bodied, moderately carbonated.
Overall: Drinks okay, doesn’t excite and doesn’t suit my palate.

From Smokestack Mixed 4 pack Into Blvd’s included tulip glass.
A: Very heady with half glass of tan bubbly foam. Tawny orange hazy body with little visible carbonation. Head persistent. Good sheet lacing.
S: Wine. Tart raisins and yeast mostly. A touch of dry wood.
T: Drier than expected. Very winey sherry-esque flavor. Strong with alcohol. A little yeasty. Warming.
M: Heavy but still crisp with a nice delicate carbonation feel.
O: Not something I can see myself drinking regularly. I’m admittedly inexperienced with the style but still not my cup of tea.
