3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The beer of Thanksgiving 2014. Poured from the bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a hazy dark ruby to brown color with an average-sized foamy white head that had short retention, and modest cling and lacing. Its aroma featured figs and floral scents along with some caramel malt and molasses, and bits of orange, wheat, and spices. The taste had a mildly sour fruity aspect, but also some earthy and grainy bitterness and a lightly sweet dark fruit effect with raisin. It was fairly wet and a bit watery with average carbonation and fairly fluid mouthfeel.

12oz bottle from The Beer Store Wilson. Reddish-brown hue, murky clarity with mostly diminishing white fizzy head, no lacing. Couldn’t get much if any aroma off of this beer. Medium bitter malt up front with a light short hop finish. Wasn’t really impressed.
