3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark red with a small but coating creamy head. a mellow hop bitterness that works well with sweet, sugary malt tates. I picture myself enjoying this a session beer at the bar.

Horrid visions of a stale beer world…No taste aside from overcooked fruit and oily nuts…Nightmarish…

Had a pint of this tonight, with some anticipation; I’ve been having some good VT-beer experiences lately. Big disappointment! Too much hops, too little anything else, bitter, cardboard taste? Drinkable, but barely, as it got better after a few minutes; but the initial taste was really offputting. No nose to speak of. Skip it.

1st one is ok. After that, I begin to notice a peculiar taste. Is it the hops? Is it what is called oxidation. Just poor aftertaste. Needs improvement.

I was not impressed, a fair beer, nice nose and some bite, but not a hit with me.

A nice well balanced red. Nice cloudy ruby red color. Could use a bit more chocolate malts though.
