From 2014 vintage bottle. Fast pour into tulip. Clear ruby red color, 1 inch cream colored head. Average lacing and retention. Not much smell, Semi sweet malty nose. Taste is full of flavor. Molasses, Carmel and roasted malt. Very thick and rich tasting. Leaves a very mellow aftertaste. Mouthful is rich, complex and sweet. Has noticeable alcohol burn down throat. Overall a unusual beer in that it's full bodied and very rich yet drinks smooth and tastes light. 4.25

2014 vintage L: Dense bright brown with a 2” light cream to tan foam cap that is lacy and clingy with a very fine bead. S: Spicy, pitted fruit, medium low citrusy hops, dark sugars, traces of over ripe fruit. T: Medium high rich toffee malt flavors balanced by medium high assertive hop bitterness. Fruit, pitted fruit, traces of citrus. Moderate levels of sweetness with traces of anise and a drying astringency on the finish. F: Very creamy, medium body and moderate very soft carbonation, slight alcohol warming. O: Decent old ale that can probably handle a few years in the cellar.

2014 vintage.

Pours a murky super dark crimson-orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Thick swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, caramel, toffee, and candied fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with toast, caramel, dark fruit, and earth flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of toast and earth bitterness and an alcohol kick on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp and dry mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that has a nice mix of caramel, fruit, and earth qualities all around.

Serving type: bottle.
