1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
On cask @ Kat Daddy. Just about black in color with an off-white head. Actually a good cask pour, amazingly. Citrus peel and acetone on the nose. Lemon, overwhelming green apple. This is rough. Flavor is dominated by green apple. Lots of bitterness. Some mild molasses sweetness, roast, and chocolate. Really harsh lemon peel. This is giving me a headache.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nitro at Kat Daddy. Good nitro foam and nice sheets of ntiro lacing. Sweet licorice in the nose with some savory soy, seaweed. Actually pretty nice. Taste is drained, sharp/stinging bitterness. Palate is still dusty, chalky, biting with bit tannic red apple skin. Not as chemically bitter and harsh and its brethren. Rye addition probably saves this from being over the top abrasive.
