2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Head gone; foxy-amber beer. Buttery smell, cookies, oxydation - old sample? Buttery, clearly oxydated beer. Cake, butterscotch and sweet - even syrupy. Slick, oily, medium bodied and tired. Bad sample, I fear.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled, first week of February. Poured clear, deeper orange with a short cap of yellowy-beige head. The aroma picked up sweet toasted caramel and sour cherry skins.. not a good sign. The flavor had some nice toasted caramel and darker fruit notes, but held onto those sour cherries (moreso on the back-end).. grainy dark fruits, light herbal bitterness, and cherries on the grainy finish. Medium-bodied and likely infected, but the nice malt backbone made it somewhat enjoyable on the palate in spite of the sourness.
