3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at HOTD. Colour...cloudy brown-amber with no head at all. Nose...dark raisins, dates,fig paste and dehydrated strawberries. Palate...old strawberries up front, then Bourbon notes and oaky tannins that blend with raisins and figs. I don’t get much strawberry on the finish, but still a dandy brew.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a dark copper color with a small white head. A big berry nose with grapes and wood. The flavor is hot brandy barrel, some oak, sweet candy, deep malty fruity esters. The strawberries are pretty big. I liked this a lot, very well made, harmonious.

Draft at HOTD. Pours murky burnt copper with minimal head. Aroma: Fred + loads of caramelized brown sugar, strawberry present as well but gets lost in the brown sugar. Taste: Loads of brown sugar; strawberry adds some sweetness, but also adds some tannic character as well. Full body, gentle (but present) carbonation, thick.
