3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy orange brown. Thick white lasting head. Good lacing. Carmel malty aroma with just a hint of hops. Taste follows the nose. Bittering hops balances the malt. Good body. I enjoyed this beer and would drink it again.

Hazed orange pour with white head and lace. Sweet caramel malt and molasses. Sweet malt, brown sugar, and a nice resiny hops bitter. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Pretty tasty

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: Passed to me a hazed, medium brown body. It’s kind of muddled, but let’s just stick with hazed for now. Nil head.
Smell: Treacle-soaked stiff barley grains with some caramel, bready notes, incredibly faintly nutty, and hints of near-dehydrated fruits and alcohol.
Taste: Firmly sweet maltiness, with lowly nutty caramel and a noted breadiness registering. Fruity accents of cherry, golden raisin, though none of it unduly pronounced. Earthy, faintly resinous hops with some underlying bitterness. Drying, malty finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Lightly carbonated.
Overall: It’s fine, really, I guess I’ll have to come check this out to see where it went post-barrel aging. As it is now, it sorta reminds me of a Lagunitas release, bringing to mind Hairy Eyeball or We’re Only In It For The Money. But only sorta!
