hivemind (712) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 26, 2011
Bottle from Rockland Beverage split with Tommy on Christmas. Pours a deep reddish brown with a light caramel hue and small to medium beige head. Aroma is immediate red wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar, with some spicy notes. Smells nice. Palate is a mix of spice, vegetable, dried fruit and malt. Earthy character to it. I wish it were a little more balanced or carbonated. Medium to heavy mouthfeel.
