P: Dark murky brown body with a frothy cappuccino head that swarms to the edges. Great wet lacing that gingerly grasps the edges.

S: Sweet sugar plums, tart limes and lemon. White grapes, candy alcohol and vanilla French oak.

T/M: Taste follows the nose with musty aged yeast, tart apple peels and pears sprinkled with pippali pepper.

O: Great complex yeasty fruit flavors. Nice and refreshing beer that I really enjoyed. Anxious to do a side by side with Jacobins rogue. Cheers!

Dark pour with a khaki head. Smells very tart with some hay and earthiness. Tastes impressively smooth with heavy notes of cherries, sour, cherry, with some bitterness to balance. Very nice. Would definitely drink this again, and regularly if possible!
