3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
8/11/12. GTMW... drank alongside cbfobes (see below) ironically, and after the fest was over... shhhhh... dark brown hazy pour with a very small khaki head. Sweet caramel and dark fruits in the flavor and a definite booze kick. Even sweeter flavor with intense caramel and fruitiness. Overall it’s a bit muddled, way too sweet and thick, and the alcohol is not hidden. It did make cbfobes fall down as we were walking out of the festival, though, so that’s cool (okay, so it may have been the previous 5 hours of beer as well).

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the East side Great Dane location, pours a murky light brown with a red hue in the light, the aroma is of dark fruits and some caramel and malt, the flavor has a ton of dark fruit on the front end with a finish that really warms you up with the booze, does not hide the 10% abv very well at all, kind of all over the place, not in love with this.
