3.56/5 rDev -8%
22 ounce bottle - $4.99 at Bullock's Wine & Spirits in Marietta, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours an opaque, rust-toned body with a ill-formed, short-lived, just off-white head. No real lace accumulation.
Smell: Sweet-scented, well-toasted, bready, and simply crackling with cooked brown sugar. Wafting, stinging alcohol all the while. Hoppy, poppy notes of pine, pithy citrus peels, and shredded mint leaf.
Taste: Toasted bread, toasted nuts, and big, sweet gulp of brown sugar linking to a seer of alcohol. Bold crystal malt quality. It's plenty sweet and sugary, but, there's alot of resiny bitterness, hot alcohol, citric orange pinches to balance it out. Even a sliver of mint. Moderate bitterness. Sugary, spicy, bitter, and a bit boozy on the bitter, heated finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation.
Overall: It'll do.

Poured from a 650 ml bottle into becker.
A: Dark amber hue. Pours a large, cascading, frothy, brown white head. Craters very slowly leaving plenty of dry sticky residue in its wake. Something like a root beer float. Lots of spider web lacing too.
S: Roasted malt, pecan, molasses.
T: Charred grains, coffee, pecan, molasses peat, and hickory chips.
M: Hearty and robust. Peaty finish.
D: Sip and enjoy.
Atmosphere is pretty good. Dark hue, giant head, and tons o' lacing. Roasted malt, nuts, and sweet molasses. Char roasted grains, with pecan, sweet molasses, a peaty character, and some woody tones. Well-balanced. Overall, this is a really good quaff.

age may have done this blended beauty some good, almost a year old now it must have mellowed some. it pours a luxurious orange brick red, cloudy and thick, with a frothy lacey oatmeal colored head. nose of warming alcohol, both sweet and dry red malts, a splash of pink grapefruit, and rich caramel, and flaked oats. less sweetness in the taste than the nose, and the complex red malt bill dances in front of a pine tree hop palate. resinous bitterness finishes it out, with the smooth texture oats always seem to add. lots of body, soft in feel though. my main complaint here is just a little too much alcohol. it doesn't add much, it detracts from some of the more subtle flavors, and it definitely gets me too drunk for more than one of these. a uniquely crafted collaboration brew here. big thanks to my brother for hooking this up for me through his wedding. hell of a gift man.
