Review from notes.

A: Pours a dark brown/red with a one finger tan head on top with moderate retention. Small bubble carbonation release from the bottom. Very different looking than the other braggot I have had. Reminds me of a brown ale.

S: A little bit of honey, some dark malt and a decent amount of dark fruits - raisins, prunes, and a little bit of cherry even.

T: Quite malty, with some dough and bread with a good bit of honey sweetness. The dark fruit comes through, not as much as the aroma, but certainly still present with some fig and raisin.

M: Medium bodied with high carbonation, but extremely dry.

O: Extremely different than the other commercial braggot I had. Not sure which is more to style, but I preferred the other. Its also quite different than some homebrew braggots I have had. The flavor is just a bit out there. Not bad, but not really what I am looking for.

Pours a deep amber to black in color, with a light tan head. In the aroma, clove, notes of spice and a hint of alcohol. In the taste, clove, roast, alcohol notes and ends with something like honey. A spice like bite and a medium bodied mouthfeel, with a dry clove and honey, with notes of alcohol in the aftertaste. Big flavors, a bit boozy, but different.

Pours a clear garnet with a nice, lingering off white head. Smells like overripe apples, cherries and grapes. Tastes much the same. The honey comes through well in the taste, raisins, slight chocolate twinge with a dry and lingering finish. This goes really well with a nice cheddar. Mouthfeel is a little thin.
Overall a nice braggot.

12oz bottle
Served in a snifter

A - Dark brown with ruby highlights. It has an inch and a half of tan head.

S - The smell is sweet and boozy. I get molasses, alcohol and fig.

T - There is plenty of alcohol in the taste. I get some roasted flavors and no bitterness.

M - Medium. Little carbonation.

O - This is only the second braggot that I have had. They tasted nothing alike so I'm not sure which one was stylistically better. This beer was hot and would probably be more enjoyable with some age on it.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle served in a snifter.

pours a mahogany tone while yielding a 1" beige head that fades somewhat quickly into a thin cap, collar around the glass. some patchy lacing. malt-forward nose offers notes of fruit, roasted malt, and honey.

flavor comes through with caramel malt, some roastiness, and honey. big honey presence strong throughout, easily the most honey i've ever picked up in a beer. medium bodied mouthfeel with average carbonation.

overall, it's a good braggot, as far as braggots go... in my limited experience with braggots i'm seeing that i'm not especially fond of them. still, it's a decent brew... won't seek it out again but wouldn't refuse one, either.
