2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Bailey’s, pours a dark orangey amber with medium beige head. Aroma brings out hazelnuts and some dark fruity notes. Flavour is similar, bringing out toasted hazelnuts, dry caramel, and some fruitiness. This sixth version of the series is loads better than fifth, but still not very sophisticated. Decent for the Bruery, but nothing special.

Draft at Sweetgrass Dairy. Muddy orange sewer water pour with a frothy white head. Phenolic, sweet Belgian yeast and fruitiness. Flavor is similar, very sticky and sweet. Blah, kind of a muddled mess.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle:   Deep caramel, reddish hued, thin to moderate frothy tannish head, spotty lacing.   Rich malty and biscuity nose, bready, faint shrub type berries.   Strong shrub like berries on the tongue, assertive biscuit, tart, mild sweetness... with even more biscuity notes on the backside.   Not so sure about this one.   Needs more caramel malt sweetness to balance it out.   Sticky overall, with a moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Feels uber shrubby, and uber biscuity.   This one was a weird one, and on par with all their xmas releases with the exception of PiaPT, that one was better than all the rest.
