COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The recipe for Einerís Folly was created by Temecula home brewer Eric Holden and was the winning recipe out of hundreds of entrants at the Ď09 Holiday Wine Cellar Home Brew Competition. Folly offers a bold, roasted, medium body, with a massive chocolate, malty richness that is balanced with soft flavors of sweet vanilla bean, toffee & a pleasant oaky-bourbon character. Finishing with a nice, dry, aggressively hoppy bitterness, this beauty weighs in with an ABV of 8%! Einerís Folly is great enjoyed fresh or hold on to it and it will mature beautifully with time.

Bottle thanks to Stavros! Pours a dark brown with beige head that lasts awhile. The aroma is a roasty nuttiness and faint vanilla bean. Light roast and chocolate with light dry finish. Wish I could have had this fresh.

Bottle shared at a local tasting, thanks Ryan! Pours black with a thin brown head and a little bit of sticky lacing, the aroma has a pretty thick amount of spices mixed in with a little bit of chocolate, the flavor has quite a bit of pine and juniper on the front end with a really sweet finish, pine needles pretty much dominate it, slick mouthfeel, kind of overwhelming for me.

750ml split at tasting. Brown-black, foamy big beige head. Gingerbread, caramel, a pinch of pine, some soapy astringency. Sugary, sweet, a touch of bitter piny soap. A lot of Christmas fruitcake action, with some nice vanilla depth provided by the barrel. Pretty enjoyable, but like a lot of Bruery stuff, has a plastic soapy bitterness that detracts from their otherwise solid product.

Bottle shared by hu5om...thanks Ryan! - Pours deep dark brown with a huge tan head. Nose is roasty and sweet, but it smells soured. Doesnít do it any favors. Taste is roasty, with notes of coffee and lots of sourness. Finishes really dark and roasty. The sourness is distracting and weird, and it just doesnít do it any justice. Iím guessing this was better when it was released.

Shared by drabmuh. Thanks Matt! The beer is a dark chestnut brown with a gargantuan tan head. Copious lacing caked on the side of the glass. The aroma offers vanilla, roast, booze, coffee. The flavor is ok. Dominant oak and ash flavors with alcoholic vanilla lingering in the aftertaste. Medium bodied. Not all the flavors are in total cooperation with one another.

750mL bottle. Poured deep brown with a short, dense, yellowy-beige head. The aroma picked up an odd hit of warm, slightly-smoky bourbon and oak with accents of iodine and vanilla bean.. the word "tincture" came to mind and, though I wasnít able to immediately define it and I donít believe Iíve ever used the word, it appears on point.. digging deeper brought out a blend of cleansers.. not what I expected or wanted. The flavor found burnt dark chocolate and vanilla at the core, with sharp bourbon, oak, and more cleanser laced throughout.. tacky, sharp barrel, bitter roast, and iodine on the long, belly-warming finish. Medium-bodied with a poor feel and flow through the palate.. enough carbonation to keep it moving decently.. overall a poor (or infected?) effort.

750 ml bottle courtesy of daknole. Pours dark brown to black with a medium sized creamy khaki colored head. The aroma has vanilla, sherry notes, light roast, showing signs of oxidation. The flavor was definitely showing oxidation/age. Some dark fruits, vanilla, roast and thinned out bourbon. I buried this in the cellar, but was surprised at how down hill it was considering the double wax, dark coll cellar, ...

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a dark brown color with an average frothy light brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted chocolate malt and vanilla woody aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid brew.
