look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Pours a cloudy ice tea color with a rocky head that leaves a few shards behind
Smell: Rather fruity, with a range of overripe stone fruit buttressed by caramel and a hint of figs
Taste: Overripe, and almost rotting stone fruit, up front, with an earthy hop character developing by mid-palate; somewhat harsh and metallic, after the swallow, though the fruit flavors linger in the aftertaste
Mouthfeel: Full body with moderate carbonation
Overall: I like many of the beers from both of these breweries but I wasn't crazy about the metallic and rotting fruit flavors in this beer; then again, I am not the biggest fan of Yorkshire Stingo, either

This pours a handsome dark amber in the big Duvel tulip. Nice foam and plenty of froth sloshing around the glass. Aroma is nutty with a band-aid nose. Sudsy and watery with some malty body.
Toasted malt flavor with fruity, leafy hops. It's a somewhat murky sort of flavor, but complex and interesting. Some cocoa and apple flavors, with a touch of burnt sugar and butterscotch. The bitterness is modest, and there is more of a woody dark taste than hops. Some scorched baked apple with hints of hard candy and roasted chestnuts.
This is truly weird but done well. The buttery flavor mixed with the slight acidity, grilled pears, and bitterish hops is a piece of work. It's all totally drinkable, it just requires re-thinking into another place and time of brewing.
I am quite fond of the Pretty Things "22nd November 1838" ale in this style, so I'm glad to see them as the collaborator on this batch.
