4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft sample at MBGSF 2013. Poured hazy reddish brown color with an average creamy light brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy dark fruit, candy sugar, wood and chocolate aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture with soft carbonation. Medium to heavy dark fruit sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish with small alcohol burn of moderate to long duration. Very interesting beer and a standout and due to RB administration this is my second time to rate #9000 beer.

Flat brown pour. Acetone and cider in the smell. Flavor is similar, boozy. THis one did not take the barrel well.
