4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted at the 6th Annual Bistro Barrel Aged Beer Fest on 11/12/2011. This wild ale pours a dark black color from the tap. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity, chocolate, coffee, wood, and dark fruit. A medium to full bodied wild ale. The malts are chocolate and coffee, dark fruit and blackberries. The hops are herbal and earthy. There is a touch of tartness throughout, mostly at the finish. Nice blend. A little bit sweet perhaps. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
