look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured a lighter brown (reddish brown) with minimal head and lacing and had a strong boozy aroma, mixed with touches of caramel and dark fruit notes as well as some wheat is noticeable. The wheat helps make for a fuller body, not chewey but close, smooth drinking, the booze is noticeable as it has a slightly heavy boozy taste, not quite bourbon/woody, the dark fruits like plums, raisins, figs are in there, touches of bitter citric hops and spice. Enjoyed this beer but the balances seems to be slightly off as the finish is muddled and at some points was really biting.

3.41/5  rDev -11.7%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Bottled 9/12

Pours an effervescent amber with 1 finger of beige colored head. Nice viscosity to this, below average head retention & lacing

S: Doughyness, pears & peaches

T: Follows the nose, leafy hops, a touch of wine sap apples & pipe tobacco notes up front. Pears & leafy hops continue to dominate as this warms, a touch of white grape as well. Finishes dry, fruity & warming with more leafy hops & apricot; plus a bit of cardboard/oxidation

MF: Chewy, fairly firm carbonation that softens over time. Becomes fairly warming over time

Alright for the style, not near as quaffable as Harvest Dance, so far this brewery isn't really impressing me, especially a pricey as they were at Brown Derby
