3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle... Pours hazy and brown with a small, short-lived, off-white head. The aroma is a mishmash of damp oak, toasted malts and apple brandy. Full-bodied with a viscous mouthfeel and lazy carbonation. The flavor is sweet as Hell and toasty. Plenty of apple brandy here, but no real heat. Finishes sickeningly sweet - absolutely cloying. That’s too bad. Westbrook beers are always promising and they usually deliver.

750, i waited a while on this one to see if the bugs would eat some of the sugar from the other ones. This was still very tough to drink. Lots of complexity though, definitely one to share

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
From the October 2014 3R6P tasting. +++ Sampled from a 750 ml brown bottle this beer poured a very dark brown color - almost black - with a small foamy beige head that faded quickly and left no lacing. The aroma was apple brandy, tart apples and apple juice. The flavor was sweet apple butter, brandy, a boozy presence that worked and apple cider. Very long sweet boozy apple butter finish. Thick and full body. Amazing!!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour from bottle at What the Funk!? 2014. Appearance is murky brown pour with no head. Big raisins, figs, plums, light oak, caramel, toffee and brown sugar in the aroma. Taste is sweet prunes, dates, brandy, bourbon, wood, caramelized sugar, and toffee. Very very sweet. Slick mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Ok, but nothing compared to all the other offerings of this festival.

Bottle. This was a nice change from all the sours we had this night. Even though it does have wild bacteria, the brandy barrel kinda takes over this one which is not a bad thing. I love apple brandy. One of my favorite liquors hands down. Tasty taste!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle courtesy of my SC buddy. Cheers, my friend! Pours a hazy brown-orange with a small white head. Nose is big apple brandy, some wood, some fudge, some fruit component, some overripe fruit, booze, and some more brandy. Flavor is a nice blend of brandy, sweet malt, fruit, yeast, and a chocolate component as well. Boozy and brandy-forward, but enjoyable as hell; one of the best beers I have had from Westbrook.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to Icehawk ! Pours a deep caramel brown color with a thin layer of eggshell foam. The nose is sweet boozy caramel, vanilla, cola, baked apple, touches of chocolate and a bit of earth barrel character. The palate follows the nose nicely with very smooth sweet dark fruit, dates, chocolate, flat cola and caramel. Hints of earthy complexity, licorice, moss and leather. Yum... could be amazing with more carbonation.
