Gail, Tasting Session

Gail, One will get ya

Aroma: Maple Syrup with hints of Fig and Grape Skins.  I'm also getting the seed of ripe fruit.

Appearance: Cloudy, burnt amber in color with a solid tan head.  

Flavor: Plum, fig and Cherry notes, I still get the Grape skin flavors.  Sweet in body, very dry finish

Mouthfeel: Low carbonation, but I don't feel it needs more do to the gravity.  Starts a little heavy, finishing light and dry.

Overall Impression:  This is a great beer.  This recipe is spot on, on the first try.  I must brew this again. 

Brewing Timeline/Notes: This recipe was brewed on Nov 11, 2012. I turned this over pretty quick due to my fermentation space.  Now that it is on tap, I'll let it sit a little bit and bottle about 1/3 of it.

Here is the link to the original post and recipe.


I entered this beer in the America's Finest Homebrew Competition 2013, it scored a 39 overall in the Belgian Dark Strong Category.

This same beer was entered into the National Homebrew Competition 2013 and it scored a 41.3, advancing to the Nationals with a 2nd place.
