3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at the Bruery. Pours a deep black with no head. Aroma is slightly coffee and chocolate forward. Taste is way more Scotch barrel and pette. Loads of this. It really seemed barrel aged. Not in my favorite way.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at the tap room. Pours a dark amber color with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily. Partial rings of lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, dark fruit and yeast. Medium-bodied with flavors of bready malt, earthy yeast, cherry and vanilla. The finish is chocolate malt and fruity yeast. Decent overall.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Bruery.
Aroma has a lit of dark fruit and yeast notes with some lighter phenolic character. Toasted bread, toffee and caramel are all very present. An odd, peanut butter like nuttiness. Faint chocolate and non existent vanilla.
Pours a clear copper amber with a tan head that recedes quickly to the edges. Light lacing and medium legs.
Flavor is medium sweet with moderate nuttiness including peanuts. Some dark fruit notes and light phenolics. Moderate toffee and caramel. Light chocolate but no vanilla.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium light carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, a weird beer with a bit of an odd peanut character. Light chocolate but pretty much no vanilla. Good dark fruit notes and light phenolics.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a deep brown color with a ripened cherry aroma. Taste is sweet and over ripened fruit in flavor. Distinct dark cherry, and prunes with every sip. Clean and crisp with a slight vanilla tinge in the taste. the alcohol content is well hidden making the beer easy drinking for the percentage of alcohol.
