3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled from a 750 ml corked brown bottle this beer poured a murky dark brown color with a medium sized foamy tan head that left minimal lacing. The aroma was toffee, bread dough, cherry and raisin. The flavor was bitter and somewhat astringent with toffee, wood, bread crust, pear, raisin and a bit of alcohol. Medium length finish. Medium body. Solid but uninspired.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2014 Light in color. Almost misleading, it actually has a burnt taste to it backyard BBQ style. Flavor is fruits, berries, wheat, marinade and spice on acid. Harsh, but just because I wasn?t expecting it. Light body, medium-lots carbonation.
