3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft… Pours a way dark mahogany hue with a mid-sized, creamy, mushroom-colored head. Good retention. The bouquet is a collection of caramel and chocolate with a splash of crusted port and a touch of peat. Full-bodied and fatty with buzzing carbonation. The flavor is peaty, malty, vinous and sweet. Finishes sweet, a touch vinous and a hint minerally. Nice job!

On tap at fermentation lounge. Dark brown pour with a sturdy tan head. Aroma is mineral, smoke and malt. Taste is tobacco, leather, smoke, earthy, dark fruit. The leathery vibe wins out. Leaves a faint long tinny aftertaste. Interesting - little smokey for my tastes.

Poured an amber color with aromas f peat, earth, smoke, and a touch of dark fruit. Flavor is the same with some added malt, but peat is the main focus on the palate. Decent beer at the FBG Beerfest this year.

Pours amber mostly clear in colo with a light tan head. The aroma hasw a bit of peat for sure. The flavor is light, sweet, earthy and peaty, but not powerful, on a smooth perfectly carbonated bosy.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft at the FBG Fest 2012. Pours a nice deep amber cola color with an off-white head. Nose is some peat, some light maple, some earth, a hint of smoke, and lots of malt with intermittent hits of dark fruit. Flavor is similar with big malt presence, light dark fruit, some smoke, some peat, and a hint of alcohol. Medium to full in body and enjoyable overall. Congrats to Luke, Craig, and Co for 200 batches!
