2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Notes from old backlog: Pours a deep brown ruby hue with a thick tan creamy head. Very fruity and buttery aroma. Odd esters, dark fruit maltose and lots of diacetyl. Mild rounded carbonation. The flavor is of sweet dark fruits, caramelized malts, brown sugar and some apparent diacetyl. Quite sweet with lots of sugary maltose and butter. Lacking hop character. Eh.
Rich caramel with molasses and maple tones were great. It is definitely a beer to be sipped. It was thick, rich, and full of flavor which was exactly what I was after. Emeister84 (2662) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - OCT 22, 2017

From notes. Enjoyed at a bottle share at Sean’s on December 29. 750 mL bottle. The pour is a dark amber brown color with a light tan head that froths down to a film, leaving a good bit of lace behind. The aroma is really sweet. There is a strong woodiness to this and a lot of sweet caramel malt. There are hints of dark fruit, but this is just sweet sugar, wood, and caramel. The flavor is much of the same. The toffee and woodiness don’t really go together, but the dark fruits are a little more prominent and the woodiness keeps things in check. It’s a little messy, but not awful. The mouth feel is medium bodied with a nice softer carbonation and a lingeringly sweet caramel and wood on the back end. This is just a weird beverage. ttutony (952) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 21, 2016

Bottle. It poured a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma was of roasted malts, maple syrup, chocolate and vanilla.
