3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650 ml. bottled 11/06/2015. Lightly hazy copper body with a quarter-inch disc of beady bubbles on top. Nose is earthy potato, cocoa, toffee, fig and a hint of booze. Flavor is sourish orange toffee, cocoa, wood, booze, vanilla and occasionally some unsettling earthy potato. Long finish has some lighlty minty herb. Medium-heavy body has medium-plus carbonation that remains mostly smooth, and a drinkable balance. Shows a bit more than 8.2% abv and is a major disappointment compared to the base beer I had a few nights ago.

Sampled at ESBLS. Mid brown with an off white layer of foam. Oh wow. Complex and unique flavors. Camomile, earth, floral, salt, fruit. I like this.

Reddish-brown colored. Nice coffee and oak addition to a solid brown base. Sweetened up considerably, but that works for a winter beer. Nice to see a seasonal that doesn’t just booze and spice up the place.

The bourbon adds a perfect lagniappe to the coffee, oak, roasted malt and lactic finish. I can't wait for this to become a regular thing.
