3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a bottle. Pours hazy brown with a humongous head. This bottle is way overcarbonated, probably by mistake. Aromas are fruity yeast esters, slight wine flavors, and caramel. Flavors are white wine, plum, date, raisin, brown sugar and bready notes. Highly carbonated, lively mouthfeel. Even though this bottle is mistakenly over carbonated, it still has some enjoyable flavors. I’ll have to try this one again.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Ok dark beer, but a bit thin & slightly metallic. With so many powerful deep darks out there, this one is simply a middle of the pack contender. Wish it had more of the flavor accents instead of the hoppy ones. I’ll keep an eye on Elevator though.
