3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 330ml @Beer Hunters
Deep clear ruby color, small white head. Strong toffee and alcohol aroma. Medium to full bodied, sticky palate. Sweet toffeish flavor, some vanilla and some whiskey lurking in the background. Suprisingly this is not like its concept - this is actually quite simple beer, but probably gets better over the years. Good one anyway.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
330ml bottle (the 200e of overpriced shit session)
Sticky stodgy malty aroma. Dark, tan head. Dirty palate. Some marker pen esters, gonna get high. Odd citrussy twist in the retronasals. Pretty rough malty body stodgy. wet rye bread. Finish is just the fading of the taste, nothing new. Do like the malts. This wanted to be AleSmith Wee Heavy. This failed so badly.
