jercraigs (8423) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2013
2013-08-17. Dark brown body with a tiny head, I suspect the bottle has been open for a while. 3+ Aroma is vinous with light roast touches, and raisiny fruit character. Flavour is similar, lightly vinous throughout over dark malt core. Average bodied palate, soft carbonation. Enjoyable. Campground Brewdown.

blipp (6892) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 25, 2013
Bottle at CGBD, and Im also pretty sure I had this on draft awhile back, so Im leveraging some old notes as well. Pours brown with a beige head. Funky and fruits, with some light malty sweetness, oaky barrel notes, dark fruits, and some light tartness. Really damn good.
