Some bread in the nose; medium body, rather herby then bitter. Very drinkable with some sourness.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home, from my NEW FAVOURITE GLASS!!!! How many ratings have I typed "from my Maudite glass"? Dozens certainly, hundreds almost for certain, perhaps the majority of my 1300+ to this point? Who knows for sure!?! But this last month I have seen the dawning of a new day. A day when my Minneapolis Town Hall glass is my new favourite glass! Anyhoo... Pours murky copper/red; thin off-white head, nice lacing. Nose is red fruit, caramel, tropical fruit, light spice, some real red rope licorice here too, along with perhaps a touch of something in the cinnamon family. Flavours of spice, red rope licorice and candies, some real red fruit and caramel, which suddenly dries, and the malt (Biscuit malt, perhaps?) begins to express itself in a husky/grainy fashion. Mildly tart, and very candy/licorice like, not really blowing me away here, something feels... off. Canít put my finger on it, but this doesnít really work.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Copper amber with a reddish hue and a medium off-white head. Aroma is grainy caramel, fairly muted. The palate is quite grainy with a hard mouthfeel and reedy bitter hops provide little aromatics. This was a pretty big dud for me. Bridgeport beers just havenít impressed me really, with the exception of their cask offerings at the actual brewery.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour is a dark red with a small whtie head. Aroma is a ok sticky sweet malt with some lingering hop. Flavor is deffinatly a rye malt spice with some sugar and a minor hop. Finish is bitter with a little alcohol. Decent but not great. Needs a heavier malt base and a lot more hops.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2012 Comes out of the tap a clear, dark amber with a fluffy and persistent cream-yellow, fine-bubbled head. Fruity aroma has malty and woody undertones. Woody, fruity, malty flavor has earthy and caramel hints - quite tasty. Firm-bodied texture is fizzy and lively. A kingpin indeed!
Tried this in a bottle - and itís just as good this was as on-tap!
