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

On tap at The Bottle Shop in Dallas. Pours dark with a head that recedes quickly. The taste is interesting because the hop bitterness hits at the end. The taste is mainly in the throat for me, which is different. There is also a hint of sour. The flavor lingers after swallowing. An interesting showing from Deep Ellum that I'll probably revisit at some point.

3.7/5  rDev -1.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Arrives with a mahogany color and a nice cap that leaves a sheet of lace

Smell: Caramel, stone fruit and earthy/piney hops

Taste: Caramel and stone fruit forward, with a growing bitter herbal/piney hop presence; rather bitter, after the swallow, though the herbal and fruity tones add a different dimension; still, a rather bitter finish

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation and hint of warmth

Overall: Bitter, stromg ales seem to be the short-term focus of several Dallas brewers right now, but I cannot say I have found one that I am wild about - just not excited by the herbal/fruity/bitter combination of flavors

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

On tap at Down House in Houston, TX. Like Wealth & Taste, there is some barrel aging and Muscat grapes added.

A: Pours a dark, murky reddish/brown color. A one finger white head forms with some lace.
S: A mix of hops, caramel malt, toasted grains, and maybe some wood aromas. Lingering sweetness.
T: Follows the nose with some hops that are up front and a bit abrasive at first. That fades to caramel malt, toasted bread, and light wood.
M/D: A medium to full body. Crisp carbonation, but smooth at the same time. Easy enough to sip on, and something I would come back to. Though one is enough in one sitting.

This is nice, think Avery's Hogheaven. Though toned down a bit with the hops. I don't get much barrel or grapes for that matter. Overall, nice but Wealth & Taste is far superior.
