3.46/5  rDev -7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A: Rich and warming mahogany. Slight beige head.

S: Warm caramel apples baking with orange and clove in the oven.

M: Semi-creamy, short of rich med-light body. Good carbonation.

T: Starts with a mineral, soapiness like a dissolving pill in the mouth. Pine, sulphur granny smiths, smidgen of chocolate, floral balsam and holly. Mid-to-higher levels of unrefined bitterness and Werther's originals adds up to an odd tasting candied cough drop.

3.71/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Canned on 11/6/19; consumed on 11/26/19.

A: Poured into a tulip glass. Body is coppery/mahogany-amber with a half-finger of greyish-white head on top.

S: A little "off" in the nose - too fruity sweet (think overripe apples and butterscotch/toffee) over a touch of caramel.

T: Caramel malt foundation, overripe apples, brown sugar and a hint of cinnamon. Finishes with a minerally bitterness that definitely offsets the sweeter elements into the aftertaste. Heat from the ABV (7.2%) is noted in the belly.

M: Call it medium in heft, carbonation is more or less lacking, making this one drink a little bit slick.

O: Disappointed in this one. I've had some really good beers from West Kill, but this one doesn't do it for me. Glad I only bought the single can.
