4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Nearing perfection, this deplorable fascist pig is a malt lovers dream. Dripping with caramel in both flavor and aroma, the ample sweet maltiness of this beer is tempered by an earthy hop profile that blends perfectly with the malt base. Pours a hazy light brown and floats a medium sized tan head that leaves thick wads of lacing on the glass. A near perfect Strong Ale. The only element that could use improvement is that it sports a very mellow carbonation. In this case it could use a bit more bubbly to cleanse the palate in between swallows. My first from Finch’s and I’m very impressed with this can delivered nirvana beer.

2/11/15 - Monk’s Pub (Chicago) - Draft - Unique colour and smell of lemon and cinnamon. A little sweater than I prefer, but I enjoyed it none the less. The texture was very light, the taste good, not very strong. Good beer and I’m glad I tried it.

can @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Cloudy brown with a one-finger tan head, bands of lace. Taste is caramel malt that adds the unique flavor of rye in the palate, turning more bitter on the swallow. A full-bodied American version of an ESB. Recommended.
