3.15/5 rDev -10.3%
Bottle pour at the pre-FWIBF bottle share held at the Adelaide Inn in Paso Robles, CA.
Pours a clear orange-brown with no head. No lacing on the drink down. Smell is of smoked malt, campfire, toffee, and alcohol aromas. Taste is much the same with harsh fruit, smoke, and alcohol flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of roast and chemical bitterness and an alcohol kick on the palate with each sip. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat mouthfeel. Overall, this is an average beer that is interesting to try, but nothing more than a gimmick in my opinion.

3.39/5 rDev -3.4%
Location: The Gingerman (Norwalk)
Appearance: Dark Brown in body and severely lightens at the edge. The beer has some pretty runny legs. Very light head with an off white color.
Aromatics: The alcohol on this just overwhelms everything and anything else in the glass. I faintly get some caramel and molasses in the bottle.
Flavor: The flavor of the beer is nowhere near as harsh as the aroma. A touch of oxidation at this point but it doesn't hit as hard as I would have expected. A smidge of coffee, but more caramel and molasses.
Mouthfeel: Oily, ashy, and a little oxidized.
Notes: 1ounce pour.
