Pours ruby red, almost dark brown with medium head. Aroma: a lot of dried fruit but also bread crust and caramel. Taste: bready with a dried fruit taste mixed with some fresh fruit (dates palm, plum). Overall very good. A bit like a mix between a bock and a barleywine.

Amber color, small head. Aroma is very fruity with bread, caramel, honey and a lot of herbs (sage, yarrow, gale) hints, some spices (vanilla, pepper) and chocolate as well. Taste offers similar hints, with some acide and roasted notes notes. Medium body, long aftertaste, dryer, with fruity hints. Well integrated alcohol. A very nice, tasty and interesting beer, very different but in a good way.

JStax (6014) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - DEC 22, 2016
11.2 ounce bottle poured into a tulip glass. The beer is a dark ruby with lots of sediment floaties throughout. Beige head of foam with moderate retention. The beer smells a lot like a spiced beer with brettanomyces and a belgian yeast strain working together. I get sweet cinnamon, cardamom, light smoke, licorice, clove, candi sugar, and molasses. Sweet and spicy taste. Bigger body and a chewy mouthfeel. Moderate carbonation. Overall, decent. I would be happy to enjoy this beer again someday.
