Gnar-Gnar Lumpkin, the shreddingist snowman this side of Nantucket Sound, likes nothing better than catching a wave on his board...a Cisco wave that is, cold, fresh, and wicked cool! Get mad shacked with the Shredder and have yourself a merry little winter.

Drake (11937) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 12, 2013
12 ounce bottle from Beer Run. Pours a clear reddish copper color with a thin tan head. Fair head retention. Aroma of caramel malts, some toast and a spicy finish. The taste is spice, apples, toasted malts, caramel. Medium bodied.

DocLock (9999) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 25, 2013
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours clear cherry wood color with tan head. Nose is vienna malt, some butyric acid, and brown sugar. Tastes of caramel malt, cinnamon, brown sugar, and some definite butyrides. This one is OK, not something great or even good. A rare miss from Cisco after the great draft lineup at Capone’s.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 1, 2013
12oz bottle. Labeled 8%. Rep described this as a braggot, though it says nothing about that on the bottle. Clear dark red color. One-finger thick khaki head. Leaves good lace. Bigger body. Lighter, kind of crisp carbonation. More dry finish. Very spice forward, lots of nutmeg. Sweet, caramel malt, some dark fruit, and a spicy herbal bitter taste. Toasty malt. Light metallic. Big, assertive spicy and bitter flavor, but overall, not a great winter spice beer. I suspect casual beer drinkers might be more turned off by this than beer geeks, as it’s a bit aggressive... Tones down a bit after it sits and warms up a bit, though (or maybe my palate adjusts)

BVery (9668) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JAN 27, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2013 Bottle.

There once was a beer from Nantucket,
which sucked so much ass I said "fuck it."
Scratching an itch, while I drain-pour this bitch,
if this wasn’t so bad I could’ve drunk it.

j12601 (9565) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear ruby tinged brown with a medium to large off white head. Malt, toast, a bit of burnt spices, and a hint of paper. Medium bodied, toast, malt, a bit of spiciness. Burnt malt and spices, dry herbal earthy bitterness on the finish.

blipp (8267) - La Mesa, California, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Bottle. Pours amber with an off white head. Juniper berries, ginger, hints of spruce, with lightly toasted malts and earthy notes. A bit odd.

b3shine (8188) - Indiana, USA - DEC 19, 2013
Bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks solid; a transparent amberish brown with foamy light beige head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells sweet and malty, kind of like a barley wine. Then it goes south in a hurry. Taste is unbalanced and vegetal with some sort of metallic presence as well. Fail; gonna drain pour this, as there’s no way I could drink even half a bottle of it.
