Poured from a 750 mL bottle into an enlarged snifter. This was bottled March 2016 and released at the brewery a couple weeks ago.

A: Pours black with maybe a hint of deep purple. Leaves a light tan head of a couple fingers that hangs around for a while.

S: Green apples, blueberry, blackberry, some hay funk, vanilla, a hint of toffee and caramel. Very nice.

T: Matches the nose. Green apple, oak, some barnyard funk, some black currant/blackberry, finishes smooth with some caramel and vanilla as well as a touch of dryness.

M: Creamy body on the thinner side. Velvety smooth. Low to medium carb.

O: A very interesting and delicious beer. Quite drinkable and with a nice mesh of flavors. Enjoyable.
