1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. Gold with a thin head. Weird sweetish notes, cardboard, creamed corn, and stagnant water. If James keeps getting this shit you bet your ass I’m gonna keep on drinking it. Why? Because I am a sick, sick individual.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle at a tasting at James’s place. Pours a clear gold, no head. Smells like dead caramel. Medium bodied, tastes of garbage water. One of the most vile things I’ve tried to consume. But sadly, not the worst. Lingering vegetal smokiness. Really horrible.
