3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is a dark brown with a medium sized head. Aroma is of dark fruit, some vinegar and caramel. Flavor is again dark fruit to start, then comes some molasses and red wine aspects. FInish is some of the wood from the barrel aging. This is a nice slow sipper with a little something each sip.

Dark brown pour with a thin beige that fades quickly. Aroma is vanilla, molasses, dates, and some wood. Taste is very sweet. Molasses, dates, vanilla, and a hint of booze. Heavy, syrupy, flat texture. Took some time to get through this one.

Was not a big fan of this one...let it age about 8 months and it was WAY too sweet and syrupy. We had a bunch of people here trying different beers and everyone agreed. Boo

Looks nice, dark and viscous. Good head. Nose is a bit hard to pin down. Attack was very sweet, almost syrupy. Finish is wet and sweet. Not my thing.
