Bottle… O-Town/Vero Beach Throwdown Part 8… Dark prune-colored ale with a small, creamy, khaki head. Decent retention. The earthy, fruity aroma offers leather, horse blanket and dark fruits. Medium-bodied and a little astringent with lively carbonation. Malty with lots of dark fruits and tannic bitterness. Not very sweet. Lengthy, lightly bitter, and then bone-dry finish. Thanks go out to growler for sharing this bottle!

JoeMcPhee (8511) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 16, 2008
Bottle shared by beastiefan2k. Black/brown beer, lightly solventy and loaded with off-flavours. There is a bit of brown sugar, a touch of bubble gum on the back. An astringent grainy harshness. There is all of the bad stuff about some Belgian yeast and very little of the good.

Sample at the Day Before Labor Day party. The beer pours a dark reddish-brown color with a medium thin dark beige head that dissipates slowly. Thin rings of lacing. Aroma of dark malt and yeast, and some mild spices. Medium-bodied with flavors of doughy malt, spices and yeast. The finish is dark fruits and malt, leaving behind a mild sweet spice aftertaste.
