3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Holiday Ale Fest. Black pour with a medium sized tan head. Tasted and smelled mainly of roast and chocolate with some light licorice. I wouldn’t even have known this was pinot aged if someone hadn’t mentioned it at the event. Pretty much no oak or vinous notes to be found.

Tap @ Holiday Ale Fest... Poured black with a light brown head. Lots of roast, very sweet, cookie dough. Dry, and a good sweetness here. Mild bitterness. The Pinot didn’t seem to impart much, maybe just to the alcohol heat a bit.
