3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml caged and corked bottle purchased at Capone’s.
Appearance: Nice brown body with garnet corners. The head is 2 fingers, beige, rocky, and beautiful! Loads of retention and lace.
Smell: Yeast, peach, apricot, and a touch of honey sweetness.
Taste: Prickly carbonation leads into some dark fruit like cherries and plums, then there is a transition to peach and apricot followed with a semi-dry finish.
Mouthfeel: Just fine medium body with prickly carbonation.
Driknkability: There is just a bitter acrid character to the flavor that makes the bottle hard to get through.
It gets much better as it warms but this one is a miss for me.
Serving type: bottle

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft at the brewpub. Pours a dark honey colour with white head. Aroma of spices, yeast, zesty lemon/lime, funk and other interesting smells. Can’t quite pin down the aroma. Flavour is better than the aroma.
