3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can, thanks for sharing jcwattsrugger. A deep brown colored body with a nice garnet hint at the edges. The head is thin and medium khaki. Leaves and caramel are the dominant smells. Apples are also present. The taste is really sweet with some tobacco and milk chocolate which is followed up by some cherries. An interesting take on the style. Well done, but I would prefer it to be less sweet.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours red-amber with a thick off white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is corn syrup/caramel and light biscuity grains. Taste is pleasantly sweet malts, but that’s about it for me. The flavors kinda drop off quickly with a little grainy residue for the finish. Would make a great session red.
