3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2014 Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a dark brown color with orange highlights and a large creamy off white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was toasty malts, molasses, dark fruits, wood and cherry. The flavor was tangy and bitter with notes of caramel, molasses, wood, cherry and tobacco. Very long finish. Full bodied. Alcohol well contained. Well done.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery. Mild sugary aroma with eatery notes. Cherry wood, alcohol, caramel. Rough. Deep dark mahogany clear with creamy lacing head. Medium-heavy chewy body with medium carbonation and alcohol warming. Starts sweet with caramel, brown sugar but quickly dries out to nutty astringency and hoppy bitter finish. Still hot with fusel and solvent. Dry bitter after. Has an alcoholic eau de vie or Calvados after.
