3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle by 08.06.12. Pleasant nose with good phenol/ester balance and a little chocolaty malt. Dark red body looks murky brown, creamy/rocky tan head. Thin and watery, restrained sweetness with low bitterness, clove/bubblegum picking up to outpace banana, which is effectively buried. Really heavy orange rind, and quite acidic for a DW. I tend to murder this style but there’s nothing to go after here!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Pours a dark brown with ample head. The aroma is of caramel and malt. This is a medium bodied beer that is so smooth and has a taste of caramel and a slight hint of banana. The flavor disappears on the tongue quickly and has little or no after-taste. I also got mine from Hi-Time wine in Costa Mesa!
