ben4321 (5565) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 17, 2015
Location: 16 oz can from Nikki’s Liquors, 4/17/15

Aroma: Has a heavily caramel malt aroma, other malts, plus some herbal and floral notes
Appearance: This one pours an unclear amber color with a frothy beige head and medium lace
Flavor: The malts dominate this one, strongly caramel, somewhat sweet, the bitterness is mild
Palate: Medium bodied, fairly sticky, with a soft carbonation, and a somewhat sticky finish
Overall Impression: I wasn’t a huge fan of this beer. There’s just too much caramel without enough hops to balance it out.

Draught @ Barleycorn. Cloudy dark amber with small whitish foamy head, faint caramel aroma, low carbonation, sweetish roasted malt taste, medium finish with bitter aftertaste. Nice and easy to drink.

When I first took a sip, I actually thought this was an IPA whose hops had faded due to age. Only when I read the description did I realized that the heavy malt profile was intended. Biscuity malts and caramel dominate with a tinge of vegetal hops at the end. Decent.

Finch’s Fascist Pig Ale has a thick, cream-colored head, a murky, rust-red, bubbly appearance, and lot of heavy lacing left behind on the glass. The aroma is of spicy (from the rye, I suppose), bready, malt and hop resin, with some background citrus. Taste is of sweet, spiced bread, hop resin, black pepper, and noticeable, yet, not harsh, bitterness. There is also a tannin note. Mouthfeel is medium, and Finch’s Fascist Pig Ale finishes smooth, easy-going, semi-dry, and highly drinkable. RJT
