3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Backlog from March 2014. Bottle that I took to Andy’s for game day. Pours a hazed amber brown with a thin white head. Soft musk, with some acid behind it. A bit of honey and maple syrup. A touch sweet and malty at the start, picks up some acid, gets a bit warm, but seems a bit empty. Tart acid on the finish. Seems like with some time this could funk up a bit, though it could also get a good bit more acetone going on. Nice start though.

Bottle care of Jaydad. Pours a deep brownish body with thin off white lacing. Aroma is light overall - notes of funky raisin bread, earthy oakiness and burnt maple. Mouthfeel is thin with light earthy character upfront followed by notes of burnt maple, light alcohol, some honey and sweet malt.
