Hog shack bottle share. 2013. Cloudy brown and quick settling cap. Aroma of honey syrup, wood, fruit. Taste is sweet. Sticky with a an unfortunate thin finish.

I love the bees wax dipped neck.. Smells great. Nice apple and cantaloupe aroma. Big sweet aroma, some bourbon barrel, wooden and watercress. Alcohol is well hidden. Smooth, waxy and honey finish. Tasty.

Visual: Lightly sealed with wax, adding a nice touch of exquisiteness despite itís very affordable price. Itís also labeled by according the year it was brewed and barrel-aged for good measure. Pours medium-dark brown with barely any head, thin ringed micro CO2 retention, visible steady streams. Nose: aromatic honeyed caramel malts, very inviting. (9/10)-aromatic strength. Attack: malty-honey-(9/10)-sweetness, silky-fizzy mouthfeel, Mid-palate: (4/10)-mellow alcohol detection (MAIN) caramel malts, honey, brown sugar (MILD) fig, soy sauce Finish: fading alcohol, malts, Summary: Similar to Innis & Gunn sweet but with more depth, alcohol, and bit of Belgium brune mixed in. Itís a bit thinnish in the texture department due to the lack of CO2 but overall the taste profile is very nice.

Gerbeer (1666) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 5, 2013
650 ml bottle. 10.2% 8.5 IBU. (It ainít bitter.) Pours a dark brown/mahogany with very little head. Aromas of caramel, burnt honey, moderate oak, and beeswax. (OK, maybe the later is from the wax seal - which smells very pleasant on itís own. ) Rich flavors of thick honey, maple syrup, vanilla/oak and roasted malts. Sweet. Very nice. Worth cellaring for a short time. Liíl Red is forgiven.

Cask at Central City Winter Cask Fest í13, pours a hazy dark amber with a small beige head. Aroma of sweet dark fruits, wood and some honey. Flavour of sweet dark fruits, a bit of honey and some metallic notes. Bizarre Ė certainly not akin to any meads Iíve had. Perhaps this could use some age as it doesnít taste particularly refined. Decent stuff, but letís see where this is at in a year.
