Batch #1, bottled 2 okt 2019. Slightly cloudy pale copper. Smells funky, mineral, sour. Fairly dense body, low carbed. Taste is nicely sour, very funky, some rye spice, plenty wood. Mineral. Really lovely complex and delicious. Best of both breweries.

CD 05/08. Hazy yellow, fluffy white head. Smells very ripe fruity, dank, mango, papaya. Nice thickness, smooth, soft. Taste is sweet and hoppy, lots of tropics, fruit. Tinsiest bitter finish. All my favorite hoppy flavours, but maybe could be more complex

Batch 320. Slightly cloudy pale copper, unstable dense white head. Smells acidic, lime. Light body, soft at first, but with some sharp chili in the throat. Taste is sour, lime, fairly high salinity. Chili heat works nicely here, just below too hot.

Hazy yellow, frothy white head. Smells herbal, some fruit, coconut, dry. Decent body for the ABV, light but not watery. Taste is pretty dry, hoppy. Coconut, citrus, some light grassyness. Finishes on a lingering bitter citrus peel. Not bad, easy.

Pours black, near flat. Smells sweet, rich, decadent, chocolate, hazelnut. Thick, smooth, boozy. Taste is very sweet, with loads of hazelnut chocolate stuff. Some whisky, which might be the haute couture stuff, who knows. Tasty, but way too sweet.

Slightly cloudy gold, high carbonation, frothy white head. Smells sweet yeasty, lagerish. Light body, bit too much carb, otherwise firm enough. Taste has quite a firm bitterness, bit of straw, lots sweetness underneath. Not bad, easy, beery, nothing more.

Canned 23/04/21. Black, gluggy, traces of tan head. Smells sweet, coconut, tonka. Thick, smooth, decadent, lightly boozy. Taste is sweet, but not overly so, nice bitter roast. Plenty tonka, soft vanilla, little bit of coconut. Surprisingly subtle. Nice!
Gorgeous dark copper colour, looks thick, syrupy. Smell is oldschool barleywine: malty, dried fruit, and a good amount of maple and light bourbon thrown in. Smooth, rich body. Taste is the smell with more. Raisins, caramel, maple, bourbon, more maple.
