3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Diving Dog in Oakland. It pours a dark brown color with a khaki head. The aroma is light roasted malt, light cocoa and lots of cola. Root beer too... The flavor is weird with lavender soap, hints of orange peel, root beer and toasted malt. Strange.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
(En fût à Stone Liberty Station): Un liquide sombre et marécageux qui développe une belle mousse beige qui s’agrippe aux parois du verre. Des arômes de saison noire avec une agréable rusticité s’en échappent. Du pain grillé, presque brûlé, nage dans des zestes d’agrume et des esters modérément épicés. Une belle découverte.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured up on tap at Liberty Station where it exhibits a murky dark brown body that supports a tan head and leaves behind some spotty lacing. The aroma offers up banana esters as well as a light Porter like bunt maltiness with some coriander spice and a faint plum candy note. The taste is soft and supple and quickly gets into light banana sweet esters, bigger spicy coriander and yeasty sort of spice notes. To midway it picks up a bit of burnt malts that take it into the finish. Nice light finish that has a touch of fruitiness to go along with the lingering burnt malts.
