4.03/5 rDev -3.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5
had this on tap after a hopslam at slows bbq, served in a goblet
appearance - a brownish color but lighter than i expected with a milk chocolate colored head, not to big but retained it for most of the beer, light carbonation
smell - smell of hops and malt up front, hops is more dominant, then it went into a slight citrus and other assorted fruit smell, finished with a slight oak scent
taste - tasted of bitter hops up front that moved into a nice sweet malt, then there was a healthy citrus and finished with a nice mellow oak flavor and slight alcohol sweetness, over all well balanced
mouthfeel - a bit thinner than i expected from the color but still a nice texture, really hit the spot being thirsty
drinkability - goes down easy, finishing on a mellow sweetness encourages one to take another sip to get back to the bitter hops, i could see this getting away from someone if they werent careful, also could be used to get a brown ale drinker come to the hoppy side
Serving type: on-tap

3.81/5 rDev -8.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Appearance - The beer was a dark copper color with a fluffy off-white head crowning the snifter. Lacing followed the sides of the glass.
Smell - The malts dominated the smell with notes of fresh bread and banana hovering in the background.
Taste - On the initiate taste, the bitterness of chocolate and alcohol strikes me. Caramel makes a brief appearance. Oaky notes and vanilla float in toward the back, leaving a dry woody impression.
Mouthfeel -Carbonation is modest with few warming qualities despite the ABV. Clearly the alcohol is well masked.
Overall - I aged this one for quite a while and must state that I am not sure the waiting was worth it.
Serving type: bottle
