3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown with a descent head. The aroma is weird, and the association I get is a dirty, wet dog! The mouthfeel is semi-oily. The flavour is complex, the notes are earthy, basement, wet, dirty dog, raisins soaked in rum and port wine, myrtle, oak and tannic acid. A very "alternative" beer that is a challenge to the taste buds.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAY 8, 2015 very malty, smokey, and slicker than snot on a glass eye!!! this is a great beer. one of the best of this style, i highly recomend it. it’s a little pricey for the tiny bottle, but totally worth it.
2015 - bigger size for roughly the same price I paid for 10 oz before. takes a while to open up...next time I’ll just slightly chill it. Too cold, it’s good. Near room temp it’s still phenomenal.

The Market Cross brewpub was nice enough to share this one with me at the HBF. Pours amber, with aroma of malt, fruit, and spice. Tastes fruity, with caramel, chocolate, nuts, bourbon, and hops at the finish. Very complex.
