1.6/5 rDev -60.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 1
Caramel body; off white head that reduces quickly
Malty mollasses and dark fruit aroma. Strange strawberries and cream aroma. When the beer is agitate a strong plastic/bandaid aroma become really offensive.
Light malty flavor. Little bit of sweetness but the mouthfeel is light as well. Strong pithy bitterness that is consistent with a lot of Allagash wilds. Charred oak and vanilla. Strawberry finish with a lingering funky bitterness. Very unpleasant drying sensation and plastic. This beer should've never been released. It's just a strange mix of flavors and bad off-flavors. It didn't change much at all since the release, which was a sample I poured down the drain, so I don't believe time will fix this beer.

dark brownish red color with a very slight head. smell of strawberries, tartness. taste is lip puckering sour and tart with a great dryness on the finish. strawberry flavor is slight. hard to believe the ABV. easy drinking. bourbon barrel is slightly apparent.medium bodied and mild carbonation.
