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

A: deep amber ale, hazed opacity; few fingers of tan head slimmed to a persistent cap; some lace trails

S: sweet wet fruit, pale, orchard-style; bourbon barrel oak; something spicy about the fruit; little herbal and floral

T: fat wet fruit and malt, bourbon barrel flavors woven throughout; hints of spiced amber orchard fruit, like apricot, maybe overripe, and fermenting...

M: slightly chewy but fuzzy and soft; medium-weight, plush feel across the palate; tingly; just a hint of drying on the finish

O: admittedly partial to this type of ale, I am pleased with Two Roads product. Lush and rustic, with a drinkable abv. Most of the reviews are for last year's batch - as of this, I'm only the second reviewer in 2014. Give it a try - it's not polished like Curieux or Doom, but it's a very enjoyable ale. Recommended.

3.78/5  rDev +5%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

A - dark brown, transparent, only a bit of haze from the sediment as I finished the bottle. An easy pour wells up a huge white head, with good retention. Had to let it sit for a minute to finish the pour.

S - a mellow aroma, not typically strong. A simple sweet aroma, reminiscent of corn mash or even Apple-y

T - much more powerful than the aroma. Sweet first and foremost. Not sickly sweet, but mellow and relaxed sweet. Again reminiscent of corn or apples, all a prelude to a strong malty backbone that hides the ABV.

M&D&O - the mouthfeel is sticky and sweet, invitingly so. It's a tasty beer. The ABV is a bit sneaky, but it's a quaffable brew indeed.
