Batch #3

Pours mahogany-copper and looks lovely with its off-white head. Smells of fruit, spice, and a touch of rum.

Overall, quite good. Very yeasty and fruity, and has a pronounced vinous quality. Phenolic -- quite the clove note. Finish is fairly smooth, although a touch more astringent than I would like after aging this bottle for over a year.

An interesting product and a good model for future breweries -- don't get mad and make life difficult, work together! It's beer, after all.

Would be nice with coq au vin. Or even warm German red cabbage with cloves and vinegar.

Collaboration not litigation batch #7

Enjoyed this in a delirium tulip glass

Poured a soft off white 1 finger head which quickly dissipates and is deep mahogany in color

Upfront this beer has a sweet toffee/caramel malt flavor with some dark fruit and little hop presence. Finishes strong with med-high carbonation and extremely pleasant alcohol warmth.

Closest thing we can get to russian river on the east coast and it doesn't disappoint!

A: Dark brown amber with lots of whitish particles suspended within, no visible carbonation. 4 fingers of light beige creamy head. Great head retention and nice lacing.

S: Sweet fruity cherry candy and Belgian yeasts, caramel, toffee, raisins, dates, Walmart new plastic items scent, floral, very enticing and complex. Leather, new car scent.

T: Fruity, floral, complex, dates, brown sugar, leather, clean linen, smooth, umami, crème brûlée.

M: Thick body, medium carbonation. Chewy and weighty but smooth.

O: Very smooth, very well done brew, complex fruity, floral, very delicious. Unable to find a Russian River brew so far on the east coast, its nice to access it through this collaboration.
