2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 5/23/13
Aroma: The aroma has some dark fruit, caramel malts, and some slightly sour notes
Appearance: It pours a reddish-brown color with a small beige head and light-medium lace
Flavor: The taste is fruit and metal, it has an oddly sour and some light sweetness
Palate: The body is light-medium, with lively carbonation, a slick feel, and and astringent finish
This one wasnít very good. Thereís a lot off about it. The sourness, the metallic notes, and the mouthfeel issues all feel like brewing flaws I guess. This may have been my least favorite of the 3 Evil Genius beers in the pack.

Amber with a thin head. Malty sweet aroma with some caramel and fruit. The flavor was also quite sweet with a bit of bitterness. A little thin.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle from Spirits Crossroads. Poured a muddy brown with outer edges that were more orange/brown and due to a rather vigorous pour an average size foamy light beige head that quickly and aggressively faded. Aroma is like a dirty chocolate banana that spent a lot of time in the dirt along with some lighter orange slices, bubble gum, paste and some old wheat. LIghter to medium bodied that is slightly watery with stronger large bubbly carbonation and luckily a quick fading aftertaste. Flavor is very similar to the aroma with an earthy dirty chocolate banana leading the way followed by some paste, wet wheat, rotting raisins and bad vanilla. Meh, itís okay I suppose.

Tap at barcade. Another infected beer at Barcade or the lines werenít clean but this thing was god awful. I went to a duck rabbit event here and had half the draft list be infected. Donít know whatís going on. Not Happy to waste money. Cheers

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Draft at Barcade Philly with Dallas, Ann, Andrew and Jen. Pours a deep murky brown body with no head, thin off white lacing. Aroma is metallic, funk, vinegar - smells straight infected. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of metal, blood, vinegar, strong unfavorable spice, rancid. Literally, the worst beer Iíve tried in a long time. Impossible to finish a pint of this.

Draft at Barcade Philly. Pours a deep brown color with no head. Weird aroma. Metallic and vinegar. Taste is sour vinegar with thin bitterness. Maybe an old batch/skunked or something but couldnít finish it.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Caponeís, and I am honored to pop the cherry on this one. Pours hazy coppery toward ruby, with minimal head. Nose is caramel malt, banana nut bread, clovey spice. Tastes medium in palate heft, with a crisp pop of dark malt, semi-sweet notes of banana, nuts, low level spice, and an overall profile that would pair this one nicely with holiday treats such as gingerbread, eggnog, or peanut brittle.
