3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy dark red amber with an excellent head.
Strange aroma is tart, fruity (including apricot) and mildly acerbic.
Flavor largely follows and is also mildly tart, but with a balance of bitter and sweet as well. A lot going on but not completely integrated or balanced.
Medium body and carbonation.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma of vanilla and bourbon. Appearance is dark red no head no lacing. Taste is vanilla, oak, some caramel. Its the palate where this beer is a little lacking. The beer isn’t thick enough but then it’s not a stout. Overall it’s a good drink.
