2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
12-oz bottle, waxed. Thanks, Pantanap! Or Sprinkle. Think it was Pantanap. Pours a dark brown with thick, moussy tan gloop on top. Vinous, extracty processed malt nose. Kinda smells like DME. Boozy twang a-hoppin’ and a-boppin’ right from the getty on the nose. Syrupy, sticky body. Vodka-spiked cookie dough mid-palate. Long sticky DME finish.

Bottle via Beerswap 2.0. Pours a clear dark mahogany/brown with a small beige head. nose is mostly plum, melon and band aid. Taste is the same with some hoppiness, pepper and alcohol burn in the finish. Medium body. Don’t care for this one.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2011 At the Pgh RB gathering 12/09. Big strong aroma. Orangy yellow in color. Strong and quite rude. Yes it is big alright. Not much to be enjoyed by a lager lover. You can certainly tell this has been aged, yet there is no milding of this stuff, ruffness lives on. Age has not taken the edge off fer sure. No detectable carbonation. Bottle is one year old. Finsh is alky linger. What else can be said but terribly on style, forget my numbers.

Sour version. Completely flat. Probably a batch gone wrong at the brewery. It is acetoney. Soy sauce mixes with nail polish. Not very sour or good. Luckily i didn’t buy the bottle, I would be pissed if I did.
