Draft at the brewery. Pours hazy copper with a fizzy off white head. Tastes very malty, boozy, like nutty caramel and dried fruits. Nice and smooth. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like dried fruits, cherry, booze, nutty roasted malt, caramel.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours an amber color and somewhat flat. Seems like this style is really hit or miss. This one is the latter. Has that nutri-sweet fake sweetness that is practically unpalatable. Tastes like all malts, chemicals and no hops. Weird. And not great.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
AKA the Devil’s Marmalade. Draft at the brewpub. Poured amber brown with a thin light tan head. Aroma was very malty, lots of sweet toffee, some fruity esters. Flavor was malty, caramel and toffee, VERY sweet, cherry, apricot and other fruit. Thick, heavy mouthfeel. Some good flavors, but the sweetness was way out balance.
