Draught @ CBC2013. Pours a dark brown colour with a red hue. Aroma of sweet caramel, toffee, some sourness and herbs. Flavournof caramel malts, herbs, wood and some tangy licorice notes. Full bodied, slick mouthfeel and a warming, malty, tart-ish finish. Great, especially aroma-wise. Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 30, 2013
750mL bottle. Poured medium brown with a dense cap of smoked beige head. The aroma picked up a hefty dose of toasted fruits and fruity yeastage.. lots of sweet molasses and honey too.. more than enough sugar to hide the alcohol, but it was a bit muddled. The flavor found wisps of smoked malt over sweet molasses, darker fruits, and a touch of chocolate.. heavier on the oddly-placed Belgian yeast on the back.. sweet, mostly fruity finish. Medium-bodied with a full-ish feel on the palate.. malt-inspired tanginess helped cut through some of the sweetness on the back.. OK feel and flow. This was certainly drinkable, but was too sweet and had some conflicting elements.
