look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a clean orange-ish to yellow color with a light tan head. In the aroma, mellow fruitiness and oaky presence. In the taste, fruity, small oak, and a caramel like presence. A small bite and medium bodied mouthfeel, with a lightly dry fruit and caramel like aftertaste. Very English, nice oak and fruit presence.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Look: Pours a nice reddish brown color with a 1/2 inch tan head and great retention and great circular lacing

Smell: Upfront is a bit of earthy hops and to be honest I don't get much else

Taste: Very sweet forward character. The combination of the hops and malt create a unique fruit sweetness that I am not a fan of. The beer also has a brandy character maybe from the barrel again..Not sure if they used brandy barrels or not and the beer finishes with some caramel and toffee

Mouthfeel: Medium to low body and and medium carbonation

Overall: I am confused by what this beer is trying to be actually. I found it overly sweet and not all that enjoyable
