Pours a dark, reddish brown. It's just a bit too dark to assess clarity. Small beige head. No lacing and it mostly fades to a ring of foam after a minute. The aroma had earth, molasses, raisins, doughy bread, caramel and a bit of chocolate. It smells sweeter than it tastes. The taste is drier than expected, though not off for the style. It has a woody dryness with a sweet and fruity finish. Raisins, apples, dates, brown sugar and mushrooms at the end. Carbonation is somewhat high for the style. It's also rather light for the abv and style. Interesting beer, though it doesn't quite win me over.

Dark brown with some dark ruby and purple edges with a thick, moderately sized light khaki colored head that leaves streaks of lace down the glass.

The aroma is a combination of dark fruits, dark bread, a bit of molasses or brown sugar, and and earthy character as well.

The flavor too is quite nice with dark fruits and bready malts combining nicely and hiding the alcohol well. Straightforward and drinkable.

The only downside to this beer, to nitpick, is it's mouthfeel. The carbonation seems a bit too high and is sort of prickly in the mouth.

Very nice; these guys are making exceptional beer right from the jump!
