On Tap. Pous a deep brown amber color with little to no head. The aroma is of malty nuts and caraml, and yeast back bone. The flavoris nice, full, and sweet. There is less body and palate than I expected, but it was an enjoyable tasting, and somewhat coplex flavor.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
At common table on cask with my mom. Pours murky brown with almond, no head. Aroma is woody horsey barnyard. Taste is oakie, hint of tannic notes. Some almost funky tart, dark farmhouse is a good description. Light and thin but not necessarily drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is an opaque, deep amber beer with a dense white head. The aroma is highly acidic but the flavor quite full and mellow like dominant notes of chocolate player on a peppery lemon cello. The palate is so full of fizz-induced foam it makes it hard to reorder.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 75cl. Batch 22. Opens with a bang, but it’s no gusher. It pours an auburn, hazy body and a big, creamy, off-white head that collapses into finger-thick height. The aroma is sort of reminiscent of strawberries at first, but then there’s roasted malts, some prune hints and a good dash of funk. It is quite effervescent on the palate, dry and perhaps a bit thin. There’s orange zest, leather, roasted malts and dried fruits in the flavor, almost no sweetness. Lasting light roasted, funky and citrus peel-ish finish. Too carbonated this one, but it’s quenching and tasteful anyway. 140622
