4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Resolution #9 gotten at the brewery late on a Sunday morning. Thick brown color with a tart sour smell reaching my nose from the tap. No head on this beer at all. Taste was of course sour, but this was very sour. However most wild ales I have tried seem to go for a fruit tartness but this had a definate brown ale background with just a ton of belguim acid piled on. GREAT BREW.

Draft at EBF NOTB. Pours a brune body with an off white head. Bourbon whiskey tones light woody and spiced oak. Cinnamon sticks with sticky Belgian yeast tones that accent as apples and light citrus tones. Spicy and sweet interesting.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at NOTB 2010. 2007 vintage. Pours a deep dark woody brown with a nice lasting beige head. Aroma is earthy in Belgian phenolics, light oakiness, and toast, with good fruity esters, some fig and apple, big toasted malts, nutty with hints of chocolate, earth, spice and more dried fruits. Flavor is caramel malts, toffee, light brown sugar, phenolic Belgian yeastiness- and fruits- estery, but everything works pretty well together- oaky, light earthiness and tannin in the end- smooth and soft carbonation all around.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at the brewpub - dark purplish brown beer, with a lasting tan head - slightly musty aroma, with notes of candi sugar, mild yeastiness, and a dubbel-ish fruity character - medium sweet, with a tangy, nearly tart flavor on the back of the tongue - dark fruit and brown sugar settle well underneath this, along with a faint roastiness that adds an interesting dimension to the beer - quite nice.
