This one was solid except for a slightly metallic aftertaste that I was not a fan of.

Shared at the BFD Christmas Party, thanks to who ever brought it.
Tart fruit and light brown sugar light vanilla and earthy woodiness. Great brew, I'm surprised I haven't rated this before.

Served from tap in a tumbler at Firkin.

Finishing off my day at Firkin by revisiting a beer I vaguely remember trying way back in my NoVa days. It pours a clear midnight tawny topped by a finger or so of dark khaki foam. The nose basically reminds me of a jar (if one were to exist, of course) of maple syrup-laden malt vinegar. The taste flips things a bit, having some tart vinegar tinging dry maple syrup, with a touch of muted brine making a brief cameo near the beginning of the finish. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation, a slick feel, and a sorta/kinda drying finish. Overall, an odd beer, really, what with its inability to decide on a flavor path (vinegar-leaning or maltily sweet), but it still retains its drinkability.
