3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the original Tampa location. Clear ruby color with tiny head retention. Aroma is candied dark fruits, thicker caramel and a hop I can’t really place my finger on. The body is medium and the best from the sampler so far. The flavor has a huge amount of candied fruits. Sugar coated grapefruit, raisins, plums, with a mild floral type hop. Nicely done.

Clear slightly dark amber with a big sugary nose, with brown sugar, figs and cherry syrup. The flavor is wonderfully sweet and boozy. Big plums and dates with a cherry note, and a wee kiss of orange zest. Big body with boozy esters and a little whisper of bubblegum throughout. Very very tasty.
