4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Josh, who I still haven’t talked into registering on the site. Still working on it though. Pours very dark brown with a four finger tan head (New Belgium "tulip"). Aroma has rye, dark roast caramel, mixed hop, and maybe some wood or smoke. Seems full bodied with creamy carbonation. Flavor starts with resin/citrus, moves on to harshish rye, and pops up some toasted malt. Some chocolate can be distinguqished. Seems a lot closer to stout than brown, but why quibble. It’s a pretty damn tasty concoction.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared in London - thanks to Colin. Pours clear amber with a huge, light tan head. The nose holds toasted grains, dry caramel. Medium to big sweet flavor with ripe berries, crunchy leaves, more caramel, toast, earth. Full bodied with lively carbonation. Lightly warming on the finish with toasted herbs, earth, leaves, grape skins, burnt grains. So so. Some interesting elements but not terribly drinkable.

Bottle at Cock & Bull Pub. Poured a hazy brown color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted malt, nuts and earthy aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy earthy sweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is another standout brew.
