Poured from the growler into a tasting snifter.

Appearance: The beer pours a cloudy mahogany color with a small layer of off white head that goes away completely.

Smell: I'm getting a dark fruit sweetness along with a caramel note. There is an herbal component as well as some oak.

Taste: This beer is sweet, but there was also a tart component to it that I wasn't in love with. I'm getting some oak in the mix as well. The sweet flavors reminded me of caramel and some maple syrup. Super oaky in the finish.

Mouthfeel: The body is medium with tingly carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: The tart note kept me from loving this beer, but I enjoyed the sweet component.

Growler courtesy of GT2. Thanks man. The beer is chestnut brown with a thin collar. The aroma offs nuts, malt, booze, brown bread, booze. The flavor brings a tannic character, brown ale, some yeast, wine. Tannic finish with sweet, malty brown bread. Medium bodied with low carbonation. Good stuff.

Thanks to Bobby for this rare tick. Shared at WLV Liquors with friends. Served in a wine glass.

A - Thin tan foam settles to a collar, some wisps, and minimal lacing. Hazy dark raisin brown body.

S - The aroma is evocative of oak-aged cherry Coca-Cola. Cola (obviously), vanilla, raisins, dark fruits, oak, spicy yeast, and perhaps a touch of alcohol.

T - The taste has better balance, with more raisin, treacle, caramel and burnt sugars mingling with the hefty doses of oak and vanilla cola. There's also a faint chocolate note that adds some depth and complexity.

M - Medium-full body, chewy texture, low carbonation, and minimal alcohol warmth. Fairly easy-to-drink for the style.

D - This was better than I anticipated, and improved a fair bit as it warmed up. I'd never heard of Ladyface before this beer but this was a solid first impression.

Thanks to Ladyface for making this beer for RBSG 2012.

Pours a hazy mahogany color with a fluffy khaki head. Nose of dark fruits such as raisins, plums, and black cherries. Good banana along with plenty of sweet toffee malts, a hint of vanilla, and some oak aroma. The flavor has a more noticeable oak profile and very enjoyable notes of vanilla to go with the sweet toffee malts. Plenty of raisin and plum fruit notes and a hint of spices, mostly clove, in the background.
