3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle; very nice looking pour, blackish with a ligther brown head of decent size. Nice, balanced aroma; lots of nice pine, earth, fruit, caramel, and roasted malt. A touch of sweetness. Nice aroma. Flavor preferred balance, subtle complexity to aggressive, over the top flavors. Subtle flavors of roasted malt and earth, chocolate and pine, with some caramel. Surprisingly drinkable.

the hops are the most potent part of this beer. all the malts are very weak while the hops got the pine and the grass. its very strong so drink carefully.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Mahogany pour with hints of chestnut and onyx, a nice khaki head. Dark malt, pine, candied citrus, caramel, toffee, and honey. Solid and drinkable but wish the hops were a bit more pronounced and stood out against the malt profile. Good but not Wookey Jack.
