Batch #48
This puppy ?sploded out of the bottle and made an enormous tawny head. The color is deep ruby red. Head retention dwindles and leaves some good lacing. Strong hop aroma with malt, chocolate, caramel dark fruits and whiskey. Flavor is quite intense; malty sweetness, fruits, raisins and a sharp hop finish. Palate is complex and stimulating with an aggressive fizz, a hoppy biting middle and a dry metallic finish. A well-done conglomeration of intense qualities with a good balance. I was expecting the usual over-the-top hop, etc., but got an interesting experience.

3.9/5  rDev -8.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured into a teku, dark brown and murky, with no head. Smell up front is smoke, a dark fruits, raisins, figs a hint of cherry skin. Getting a lot of smoke in the taste. It's a subdued smoke, not like a rauch or anything, but it's definitely there. Was not expecting it and it overshadows some of the other flavors. No carb issue here. As it warms, some of the dark fruit, caramel, burnt sugar flavor is coming out. Super complex. This might have gone over my head. Worth a try for sure. I'll try some with some age on it, see how that compares.
