A: Pours a chocolate brown/ruby red color. A pathetic bubbly white head forms and vanishes in a second with no lace. From the look, there seems to be almost no carbonation to this at all.
S: Mild oak, smoke, and vanilla in the nose. Followed by an astringent, almost metallic aroma. A strange acidic twang.
T: Ug, no better here. Very mild oak and vanilla flavors. Burnt toast. Astringent with a metallic tiny flavor. Again, a strange acidity. Not good.
M/D: To say this is light is generous. So paper thin, and hardly any carbonation here. Not something I care to come back to or finish.
After a very surprising beer in RU-55, I follow it up with this. I remember loving this beer when it was not "farmhouse." The original version was great, especially on cask. This is a thin, unappealing beer that has no business in the English mild or farmhouse styles. A complete mess.
