3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from a trade. Thanks! 12oz poured into a snifter at home. No head. Deep muddy reddish brown, thick pour. No lacing. Aroma of bread, Belgian yeasts, heavy malts, caramel, toffee and dark fruits. Some booze on the nose as well. The taste was odd quite frankly. It tasted like a barleywine or crossed with an old ale with some Belgian yeasts. Bready, dark fruits, slight sweetness, caramel, heavy malts. Dry finish with a booze snap at the end. I don’t get the IPA portion of this at all. Probably a one and done for this one from me.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample @ CBC 14. Clear amber pour, thin off white head. Aroma is very herbal, yeasty and caramel malts. Flavor is quite bitter, full of yeasty alcohol. Not sure if there’s an alcohol kick in there or of it’s just some hoppy bitterness. Either way, it seems a bit strange and messy.
