Can from Sam’s Quik shop. Pours brown with a khaki head. Looks kind of turgid in the glass. Has kind of a musty stank quality on the nose. Tastes like a fir tree. Finishes not a very pleasant experience.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
@ Whole Foods Market / Asheville NC --- Cloudy dark red mahogany with a thick head cover, curtain of lace. Taste is roasted malt that adds coffee and biscuit as well as a bit of spinich queso. The whole thing is kind of a mess to drink with sweet, bitter, sour, and herbal stuff going on. Big, but not very enjoyable.

can. I enjoyed this more than almost all spice/herb beers. I think mainly because it is well balanced. No one flavor rises above and dominates. I enjoyed this tremendously.
