3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co. after the mini-power outage, and snifter served showing good clarity, and an amber highlighted, walnut color, with a nice hat of off white/light tan foam that reduced rather quickly to a ring and film, but left some spidery, web-like lacing on the glass. The nose was esters/citrus, resin, light graininess, and caramel maltiness. Medium+ bodied, the flavor boasted a hefty, deep bitterness that was earthy, rindy, lingering, and paired up with some resiny dryness, and a touch of sweetness. Very nice, and moderately warming.

Mild caramel aroma, pours a reddish-amber with a huge full off-white head. Nice balance between the caramel malts and the punch of bitter hops. Long lingering bitter finish. A nice addition to the style.

This poured a murky red with a beige head. Aroma was caramel, toast, and earthy hops. Flavor was similar, basically an overmalted impy ipa.

Bottle... Poured brownish, mostly dark burgundy red with a moderate egg-shell head. Malty nose with a hint of hazelnuts. Big toasted malts here with lots of sweetness. Still some bitterness from green, floral hops to mix it up. Some alcohol warmth, but not overly boozy. Full, thick mouthfeel, a little sticky on the palate and slight bit of acid. Some dark fruit esters but ultimately the malt out weighted everything else here.
