3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
It’s mostly clear and glassy, dark amber in color with a fine, bright white head. Its aroma is delicious, with highly caramelized malts, alluring hops, and an overall darkness that’s as captivating as a magical, sunken ship. It really smells more and more like a high-hopped red ale to me, with alcohol in play, yet still remaining thick in body. Now... That’s all just from the nose. It’s likely that this will be completely different from here on out.
Wow. This is really interesting. definite levels of high caramelization and high levels of oily hops come in to play right up front, but a distinctive, mysterious flavor whispers sweet nothings in your subconsciousness. It could be the crust of a blackberry pie. This is really good. I’m thinking blackberry pie more and more now. It has a great, thin body (for the most part) with a warmth that’s making me think there’s some sneaky alcohol in play. It finishes with residual sugars, some plant-like fruity sweetness, and a very complimentary hop variety to round off the experience. Very nice.

Hops are a bit over the hill, yet it's still tasty. Woody, pine, hoppy. Yeah, good stuff.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the brewpub. Brown pour with a white head. The aroma is light pine and grapefruit with a good dose of toffee and biscuit malt. The flavor is also a bit hoppy. I get some juicy orange citrus flavor, but very little hop bitterness. There is also some sweet toffee and caramel character, as well as a thin of dark fruit. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Tap flight at the brewery. Dark honey color with a brilliant a white head that coats the glass. Stone fruit -- most notably peach and plum -- aroma. Taste is quite hoppy with the stone fruit flavors. Good bitter balance and moderate body to hold it all together. Tropical fruit flesh flavors linger in the mouth.
