This is a very rich, succulent beer. Appearance is ok w / a modest tan head , almost opaque, but clear garnet. Aroma is vinous yet malty& alluring. Flavor is ~ nose with enough tang & bitter to balance. Excellent body. Ditto finish.

Great caged cork, Belgian longneck bottle. Great label. Clear, deep bottle-brown beer. Big tan head that fades to a thin carpet. High appearance marks. Earthy, sweet, fruity, dark complex sugars in the aroma. Very smooth mouthfeel. Caramel and molasses on the frontend, then goes spicy and yeasty. Chewy, lots of complexity. Leathery towards the end, with a satisfying finish. Warming. Nice work. Market Square Liquors.

Bottle sampled at Classic City Brew Fest 2014. Pours a hazy copper brown with minimal bubbly head. Aroma is big on the dark fruits, both from the addition and the yeasty esters. Taste follows, nice malty balance and a bit of a boozy burn. Very nice, but I think I may like the original better.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a deep, burnt amber with surprisingly no cap. Aroma is a lot of plum, cereal, burnt caramel, a touch of sweat. Taste is a balance of sweetness and saltiness. Low carbonation, sticky mouthfeel, very late dry finish. This ones all over the board, but not in an unpleasant way.

Bottle from Brusin’ Ales. Pours dark, dark brown with a thin brown head. Leaves trace lacing in the glass. Nice plum notes on the nose. Big fruit and molasses notes on the tongue. Finishes clean and doesn’t leave much alcohol on the tongue. Nice!
