3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
"i have to take issue with the "wild and untamed" portion of the brewers description. other than that, it’s pretty accurate. a darn good beer, wild or not, just not what i was expecting. great malty flavor and aroma, with just a hint of the wildness and spices promised. a dangerously drnkable brew for 9.5%. The Bear’s summer alternative to Blac Bear stout."

Draft. A dark chestnut colored beer with a brown head. The aroma has notes of malt, yeast, wood, and wine. The flavor is sweet - a bit too sweet, with notes of malt, caramel, spices, nuts, yeast, and wood, leading to a dry spicy finish.

(draft @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Dark brown pour with a thin tan head and very light carbonation. Mildly roasty and rather spicy aroma with a lot of sugar sweetness. Spice and nuts with a big sweet and syrupy flavor at the start with s very nice dark fruit, dark malt and lightly spiced finish. Goes down smooth for nearly 10%.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2010 Tap @ Saraveza... Poured a dark cola looking with a thick, off-white head that retained. Aroma of faint spices, yeast and such. Lots of spice on this brew. Even an earthy, peppery heat towards the finish. Slightly dry and cloying, but made up for it in yeast spiciness. Yeasty, doughy, cookie dough sweetness on the malts which paired nicely with the nutmeg/cinnamon spices.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at BT. Pours a deep dark hazy brown with a thinning head. Aroma is a bit minty earthy bubblegummy phenolics, Belgian yeasty character, toffee, dry roast and toast with some chocolate tones, vanilla, and brown baked/toasted malts- some cookiedough. Flavor is a touch fruity with earth, mineral and sweet nutty chocolate malts, more phenolic slight plastic notes, leather, and some menthol crystal slightly offwith a slight buttery thing going on and cherry cola on the finish. Strange and a bit off overall.
