3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not bad, pours a translucent prune into the glass, with an initial wispy head that reduces to nothing, leaving sporadic lace. The nose is of roasted hoppy fruit. The flavors are on par with the commercial deScription. There is some roasted malt, dark esters and English bitters around a tannic acid and biscuit flour finish. The mouthfeel is a bit like a hard cider with decent carbonation levels. Palate is light and fruity, but at the same time dry-roasted. Interesting.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Flat carbonation. Carmel and malt aromatics. Too thin and passive. This isn’t something I’d return to.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
It poured a very dark amber liquid with a small foam. It had a smell of caramell and malt. It tasted malty and caramell with some sweetness. It also had a slight alcoholic finish. It was a bit dry but easy to drink and a bit boring.

Bottle shared on the 4th- Poured an amber red-clear, head went away real quick. Malts and caramel with a hint of dark fruits. Light in carbonation-thin body but not a bad mild beer.
