Pours a murky golden with no head and no lacing. Aroma of apple, spices, sweet aromas. Taste is malty, yeasty, some calvados-like apples, sweet. Medium body and low carb. I was really happy when i saw this bottle open and had good expectation, and they fell off....

Slightly hazy burnt orange slight gusher with a head that fades fast. Has an oaky sewage nose. Very dry earthy taste. Apples are present and so is this boozy alcohol burn at the finish. Abv feels more than it is. Very bland boring finish

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (750 ml). Batch 1 I think. Small gusher. Thanks to the guy who shared it at Hill Farmstead 3rd anniversary bottle share. Hazy/murky (gushing certainly didn’t helped the appearance) yellow with no head and no lacing. Aroma is of malt, caramel, cider-like apple, spices and alcohol. Taste is moderately sweet with caramel, malt, spices, apples, alcohol and wood. Some sour notes. Medium body. Low carbonation. Decent beer, but I think it was over the hill. Quite complex though.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Nose is apple, wood and a little hop bite. Taste is boozy, slightly buttery, strong notes from the barrel. Nice apple aftertaste thats isn't overwhelming. Mouthfeel is medium, slightly on the dry side. Could use a little more carb. Pretty tasty and well put together.

Shared this bottle at a local tasting awhile back, Pours a hazy yellow with a thin head, the aroma is pretty sweet with a little bit of the brandy coming through, the flavor is really sweet with a little bit of sour apples in the finish, a little boozy but still pretty solid, not bad.

On tap at blue monk, captain Lawrence beer dinner. Dark gold amber pour with a thin white head. Smells like fruit, Apple, sugar. Yeasty. Tastes sweet, some hops. Brandy heats things up and adds lots of Apple. Warmer it gets, the more syrupy it gets.
