A: The beer pours wonderfully into my Ovila Chalice. Deep brown with a small light brown head. The retention is pretty decent, but I wish there was more lacing. 3.5
S: Big dark fruit hints with a nice roasty undertone lead to a pretty sweet aroma. The booze is not noted in any way. 4
T: The taste has the balance I would expect from these two breweries, just outstanding. The dark fruits provide the base for the roast and sweetness to explode. The booze really is not even there. Clean taste and finish as the fruits take you home. 4.5
MF: Heavy body with a lower than average amount of carbonation. The crisp, clean finish really bolsters the drinkability of this already well-balanced beer. 4.5
O: This beer almost certainly will age well. The sweetness is doing a lot of work here, and most likely would shine with a few years on it. Really glad I picked this up. I can't wait to try the barrel aged versions. 4

This pours a ruddy raisin brown color with light foam. There’s a bit of stone fruit and plums on the aroma, with an earthy estery profile. I find the flavor to be sweetish but not cloying, with some plums and figgy notes. Comes off smooth and almost velvety.
Serving type: on-tap
