3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Ølfestival 2011. A clear, dark brown beer with a tan, finger-thick head. Roasted malts and dried fruit notes on the nose. Pleasant but a bit one dimensional. The same goes for the flavor, it could use more depth, and the redwood tips isn’t very well pronounced. Maybe it’s the lack of hops that make it so one dimensional, maybe it’s not enough redwood tips in it. The finish has a herbal bitterness and some roasted hints. Medium body, pleasantly carbonated. Even though I’ve pointed out a few things with this beer, it’s a decent beer indeed, easy drinkable too. 110526

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A - Served a black color with a bit of brown mixed in and just letting light through around the edges. There is a frothy finger of brownish-tan head atop that fades slowly leaving behind lots of lace.
S - The aroma is a mix of many different elements including some herbs/floral elements, some chocolate malts, wood, and a just a touch of hops.
T - Starts off with a mix of roasted chocolate malt and some wood flavor. There is also some floral flavors starting up in the background. Through the middle, the floral flavors get a bit stronger with some herbs as well and just a bit of was seems like hops. The finish is a mix of chocolate malts, floral elements, and a bit of wood that lingers.
M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth and a bit dry from the herbs and floral flavors.
D - Very drinkable. Lots of flavors that do not seem like they would work together mix here for a really tasty and balanced beer.
