3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle. Pours a dark red amber pour with a minimal head. Holy shit. The aroma on this is crazy. Apple brandy, booze, oatmeal, oak, some malt . . . it kind of feels like my nostrils are on fire. Flavor is powerful, boozy. Some malt presence behind the strong oak flavor. Lots of smoke, apricot, apple, and brandy flavors. Certainly, this is interesting, albiet quite powerful. Subtlety is not its strongpoint, but it’s an interesting beer regardless. Finishes with a strong booziness.
