Shared at the local homebrew Christmas party. Hazy, dark pour with a off-white head. Aroma is dry spice, off mint, and weird. Taste is more off-mint, dry, and roasted.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Tried some of a buddyís beer while at Draught House in Austin. Pours a muddy dark brown; bottom of the keg, maybe? Not much off the aroma, just some lighter notes of toasted caramel, earth, and nuts. Flavor is pretty much the same. The main problem is the utter lack of carbonation. Light-bodied and watery. Seems like a homebrew that didnít turn out right. If it were my buddyís batch, Iíd point to the best elements and be encouraging. But this is not worth releasing if youíre a commercial brewery.

I had high hopes for this beer. I like the brewery and I liked the beerís name but alas this was not an enjoyable brew. First of it had so much foam we had to wait forever just to get sample. The taste is iodine, creosol and just plain nasty. Overall, yuck!

Black beer. Light in body but with a nice but boy head. The beer smells like saddle and tastes like straight leather. Its good though but may come off a little bit like a cleaner or oil to some. It has a strong bite. The finish is a little sweet. This one may go better as a candle than a beer.

1.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Dark brown, ridiculously large, bubbly beige head. Aroma of caramel, toast, some fruit, and earth. Taste is malty, harsh, obnoxious, and very unnatural. I canít even hope to differentiate all of the off flavors in here; bandaids and medicinal flavors make a significant appearance... Not a good thing. Fizzy. Not so pleasant. Strike that. This is terrible. It really sucks when you have to drain pour a bottle this size.

2.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Fruity sweet aroma. Pours coffee brown with a light brown bubbly head that dissipates fairly quickly. Roast coffee bitterness. Molasses finish without the sweetness. Very carbonated - think coke carbonation. I had such high hopes after trying their Flyin Monks.
