On tap at brewery. Looks nice copper with off white head. Clean malt nose. This is nice. Full malt flavor, dark fruit, molasses and roast flavors meld well. Hops step up to balance finish. This is well crafted.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy amber/ruby color with a thick tan head...very nice retention and lacing. Aroma has notes of dough, caramel, candied fruits, and citrus. Flavor has candied fruit up front and is quickly dominated by agressive earthy/resiny hoppiness and booziness. Mouthfeel is medium/full and sticky with a candied fruit/resiny/earthy very bitter and warming finish that leans towards medicinal.
