Texas

4/5  rDev +9.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A-Pours a clear amber color with initially, a huge off white, creamy head that has very good retention, but not much lacing.
S-Let this one warm up a bit before pouring. It's a tame in the aroma, faint with dark fruits, sweet maple syrup, brown sugar, candied prunes. Very solid aroma for an english style BW.
T-Much like the aroma yet with a much more pronounced caramel coated prune sweetness, there is some maple syrup and brown sugar notes but it's more in the finish than anything. There obviously is some alcohol warmth, but that's a given. Also some clean soft bitterness is there to keep it from being too sweet, thank you.
M-Thick and sweet, very chewy body, yet easy going down. A lingering sweet/warm finish. Would be nice to enjoy this in the winter, but it's summer, so, anyways.
O-Overall, I had my questions, but it turned out to be a pretty good interpretation of the style. Good beer!

Delaware

3.83/5  rDev +5.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A - cranberry, plum colored, almost a red/plum wine

S - alcohol, plums, figs, dates, honey

T - very sweet, can taste the alcohol but not overwhelming, fruits are darker ones - plums and figs, maybe some berries

M - sweet, sharp from the alcohol, medium bodied, barely any carbonation

O - Very sweet, the dark fruits are nice, taste of plum and the figs/dates are rather different, but its almost too sweet at times. A sipper.
