look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Got this beer at a judging competition I helped run. Let's give it a go.

A: A very dark brown color with a 1 inch tan head that fades at a decent pace. Good.

S: A slight vegetal scent upfront followed by a hint of light malt. A very faint roastiness on the back. Eh.

T: A watery roast upfront quickly followed by a slight tomato juice flavor in the middle. A mild maltiness on the back. Ok.

M: Medium body with a good carbonation. A watery malt finish. Decent.

O: All in all, this is an ok beer. There are many better in the style. Don't worry about this one. There are too many odd flavors floating around in this that don't serve it well.

Serving type: bottle

3.13/5  rDev +0.3%

Beer is amber with a slight haze to it. Thin broken head of small bubbles that leaves no lacing, carbonation low.

Aroma is strong with bananas and other esters, perhaps some bubblegum.

Beer is medium to light in body, pretty sweet on lead off and finishes with this blank bitterness rather dry. The midpalate is a collection of yeasty esters that gives the whole beer this artificial sweetner flavor that I find, personally, rather off putting. It's too fruity, too ester, for a winter warmer (or and Old Ale) and I doubt I'd drink it again. Pull back on the ABV, add something interesting other than some esoteric yeast and relaunch. I'm rooting for you Franklin's but this was a miss.

Serving type: on-tap
