3.96/5  rDev +12.8%

Tasted w/ Heavy D & Saramisu
Watou Chalice

A ~ Dark Auburn w/ very delicate carb & splotches of lace.

S ~ Caramel malt, bread crust, mild cocoa...faint vanilla/oak notes.

T ~ Toasted bread..light roast character..Farmhouse yeast really ties
everything together & adds a nice ester component to the flavor

M ~ Dry & Toasty..Very mild funk. Goes down very easily.

D ~ Super drinkable, & just as good if not better than the first time I had it.
I love seeing beers that show how flavor can be imparted w/out increasing the ABV tenfold. Thanks brad.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter

A - Deep brown, certainly cannot see through. about 2 inches of white/ light brown head. head faded within a few minutes.

S - smoked porter?

T - very light. mild. smoked flavor.

M - watery. low viscosity

O - Its a replacement for water. Not suggesting this is anything close to BMC. Most likely won't ever purchase again. $8 smoked water? na....

Much darker than one would expect given it's low ABV, but the pour is a clear dark brown. It's dark enough that you don't see how clear it is unless it's held near a light source. The head is beige and a finger thick, but lacks in retention.

The smells are subtle, even with swirling. Strangely, smells of veggies. Some dark fruits, caramel, and smoke.

I don't care for the taste. Reminds me of watered down cola, though the carbonation is there. Earthy tastes, with hops most noticeable in the finish.

Very loose, watery feel. Light bodied despite the color. High carbonation, prickly feel in the swallow. Lingering bitterness.

It doesn't work for me. Tastes and feels lager-like, with the exception of the carbonation, nothing jumps at me.

Served from bottle into a Hill Farmstead oversized wine glass. Poured a massively dark brown with a two finger light tan head that subsided to one finger very slowly. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, bread, fruit, wood, and subtle spices. The flavor was of sweet malt, bread, fruit, spice, dark chocolate, and subtle wood. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was apretty decent brew. I went into this one truthfully expecting to find something awesome in this one. What I found however didn't really jump out at me like I would have hoped. There was a nice bit of things going on in this one which was nice to find. Really wish there would have been a bit of dark fruit going on in this one to balance it out some. But hey, you can't win them all. Definitely worth your time if you get the chance.
