3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
FoBAB 2009. This poured a reddish amber body without a head. The aroma was a bit boozey with a fruity tartness to it. The flavor was both interesting and tasty, a raspberry tartness, a bit of funk, dark fruit, vanilla, and oak blended tastefully with Bourbon. It finished on a tart note. I hope that Iain Wilson puts this one on tap at the brewpub soon so I can get a heftier dosage of this brew.
