3.68/5  rDev -6.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Root beerish amber brown, a sort of dubbely color, with an ivory head. Toasted marshmallow, vanilla, caramel, pecan pie, bubblegum, oolong tea, and light chocolate notes bounce around in the nose, but on the palate little of this nuance registers. It is mostly nutty and toasty with malts with pineapple fruitiness and a mild vinous quality, but it is generally not interesting enough, and too cloying. It's not bad, but it feels vague and unfocused - I expected the full, roasty richness of a brown ale or porter combined with the funky complexity and effervescence of a saison, but it delivers neither.

Serving type: cask

4.15/5  rDev +5.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

No carb, slighty murky and jet black.

Sweet fruits and cereal malt in the nose. Pricky & spicy hops, some charcoal malt, yeast and alcohol hints

Good malty thick mouthfeel, plenty of prunes and dried fruit balanced well with spicy bittering hops and a warming alcohol presence.

Good stuff.
