look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3
Appearance: Pours a hazy, medium amber-brown body, a bit murky, with a medium-sized, beige head.
Smell: Earthy, anise, with a strong scent of the added berries sprinkled with yeast. Thin sliver of smoke. Toasty, bready malts, a bit mild in aroma, when compared to the more potent aromatics. Pinch of allspice and a belt of booze.
Taste: Syrupy-soaked, toasty breadiness in the fore, but, right away, there's a burst of sourish, sharply tangy berries. Additionally, toffee and a shot of liquor. Orange zest. Lightly musty, yeasty. Spice, light vanilla, and varied-berry liqueur on the back-half with plenty of belly-warming alcohol driving into the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium-plus carbonation.
Overall: It's a tad hot. Don't go into this bottle alone, friends!

bottle picked up locally cause i'm a sucker for this series and at this point, why start skipping them? enjoyed from a 5 oz brewery taster...stemless snifter glass.
a - a semi transparent mahogany brown with a thin bubbly head that bubbles away no real lace to speak of.
s - nose is sweet. dark berry and just sweetness. smells like a lot of the american takes on a BSDA...missing the lush creaminess of the classics.
t - definitely sweet...as the nose suggested. hints of brown sugar behind some dark fruit and berry.
m - extraordinarily thin. lacking the creaminess and body that a good BSDA needs.
o - overall, the bruery makes some amazing beers, and they also make lots of meh beers...because they make SO many different beers. there hasn't really been a superstar yet in this series and it makes sense since these are all one offs. i doubt time will do magic on this one, hopefully tame down the sweetness....all in all for some dumb reason i feel the need to try all of these and the BA versions (some of those are pretty solid) and every time i consider stopping and then just go for the tick. oh well, if you aren't ticking or collecting the set, i'd pass on this beer. not a drain pour...but that's about all i can say about it.
