Bottle @ home, courtesy of hasselHOFF. Thanks Kyle! Pours quite hazy reddish orange appearance with no head. Caramel, dark bread, somewhat citrusy, a bit spicy aroma. Goopy, sweet caramel malty, orange candy, boozy flavor. Honestly, makes me gag. Not good.

Ughsmash (7122) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 5, 2009
Bottled. Poured milky, yet healthy golden with a short cap of off-white head. The aroma was fragrant and very enjoyable with earthy and light citrus hoppage over thick biscuits and caramel.. the malts actually stole the show, which wasn’t necessarily a bad thing. The flavor had the same biscuit and caramel malts at the core, surrounded by a bit different bitter hop array than the nose (white pepper, resiny pine, and earth present here).. finished with thicker sweetness and sufficient residual bitterness. Medium-bodied with fluffy carboation on the palate.. sweeter than it was bitter, but balance was there.. a bit slick at times, which impeded the flow slightly. This was by far the best brew I’ve tried from these guys.
