Pours a slightly hazy brownish red. Aroma of grain and malt. Malt forward with nutty overtones followed by maple syrup. Then the finish is crisp while the bottom drops out and bitterness is left.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle courtesy of queenholly. Dimpled mug displays a cloudy amber color with a thick soapy white head. Aromas has notes of straw, malt, and a bit of minerals. The flavor is toffee and earthy hops with a slick/ oily texture. The label reads “aged in oak foudres” Well, I don’t smell or taste oak. I do taste the alcohol notes after the sip. When I read oak on a label, I want to taste it. I was excited for this but it leaves me flat.

Nice aroma of caramel, raisin, bread and toffee. Light amber color with very thin head. Sweet, toasted caramel malt flavor first. Lingers a bit and then has a brief sour bitter bite on the end. Finishes a little off....but a nice offering.
