3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Reddish brown with a fast fading tan head. Nose is light cherry skin tartness, roast, cocoa. Flavor is similar, a tad metallic and ashy. These TC beers are really hit or miss but I'm surprised and impressed by their quality control. A tad thin and cherry skin bitterness in the finish. A tad overcarbonated.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
$2 bottle from gbx 7/10/11.
dark porter color with a pale brown head...soft and spongy.
mild aroma...kinda jaeger-y... wood, lactose, nuts, black raisins and roast.
the flavor shares the notes from the aroma but tosses in molasses, choco, spicy hops, herbals, and ashiness.
it’s medium bodied but prickly...creamy yet crisp and dry.6/4/7/4/15

Interesting. The aroma is malty with a umami flavor. The beer is black with fading tan head. The taste is soy with malt. The body is smooth but has an oddness to it.
