Growler share at Evernote. Roasted malts, medicinal, tinny (probably some oxidation). Ultimately too sweet for me.

650ml bottle. Clear, ruby red glowing, darkest brown colour with small to average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, beige head. Vinous aroma, raisin notes, hints of grapes, red berries and their parings, a perceptible amount of alcohol. Taste is slightly dry malty, slightly vinous, dry hints of fruit parings, a touch of raisin, a touch of alcohol in the finish. Nothing spectacular.

Fatehunter (1642) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - SEP 18, 2014
Pours a thin head on a clear dark straw, almost red colored body. The aroma is big dry grain, caramel and salt. The taste has lots of caramel and grain sweetness with lemon bitterness to balance it out. The texture is fizzy with moderate carbonation. Enjoyable.
