4.1/5  rDev +4.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Cloudy brown in color with a rocky off-white/tan head. Laces somewhat well.

Raisins, musty grains, caramel, brown sugar, and a bit of bread.

Bread starts to take over the flavors, with raisins/dates close in tow. There's some muddled sugar flavors in there, and there's almost a buttery flavor.. finished off by some alcohol bite.

Fairly thick on the tongue with a load of carbonation, even with an aggressive pour.

I like this better than the version I tried last year. Last year's was too yeasty and unrefined, whereas this one seems to have a few flavors coming forward. The alcohol bite takes away from drinkability, but overall its fairly palatable.

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!
