3.85/5  rDev +6.1%

Pours minimal head on a hazy deep red colored body.
The aroma is nice with gingersnaps, honey and lemon.
The taste has mild lemon bitterness throughout, sweet honey, candy and bread. Really nice.
The texture is thick with alcohol heat, smooth with low carbonation.
Very drinkable for the ABV. Should only get better as it ages.

3.08/5  rDev -15.2%

Poured from 22 into tulip

Murky, some decent lacing. Not much going on. Minimal head. Good legs from the booze

Again, not much. Sweet caramel, booze, red apple

Alcahol well hidden, but not as complex as I was hoping from such a big beer. Some light fruit character, lemon peel, caramel.

Light for the abv, would like a bigger mouthfeel for what I thought it was...11.4

Mediocre, my first offering from dust bowl, I'll probly try therapist next if anything. All the dust bowl products seem to sell really well in my store, more of the hop-forward beers though.

Sampler pour at the brewery. Beautiful dark amber color with residual head and clinging lacing. Nose is a mix of malt and booze with a nice dried fruit and carmeled apple note. The taste is very boozy, but smooth and highly drinkable. Unfortunately the alcohol overpowers a bit on the taste and the beer doesn't live up to the promise delivered in the nose. My pour was very full in mouthfeel; no carbonation issues that others have noted.
