3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep and hazy amber with a thin layer of tan head. Aromas is strong with some sweet and sticky floral notes as well as some piney resin. This beer has a very strong flavor, it almost tastes like bitter molasses with a tinge of alcohol which lends to a fantastic aroma but to somewhat of an overbearing flavor. The flavor profile tends to change a bit from sip to sip, but most of what I get is a sweet and somewhat rounded tart flavor. Pretty good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
16oz can from BrookFalls Discount. Pours an amber orange with an off-white head. Nice lacing. Aroma has citrus and sour fruits and pale malts and earthy grain. Taste is of grapefruit and grapes, with some solid caramel malt back. Medium bodied. Finishes sweetly bitter with some length. An interesting brew; not sure what style they were going for.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can: pours a reddish copper brown color with a tiny little tan head. Aroma is malt with some spicy rye. Nice heavy mouthfeel with a bitter backbone. It’s all malt upfront with that spicy rye again. This is a wonderful beer if you are looking to fill up on something. It’s pretty heavy feeling, in a good way. Tasty beer after a long day at work. Enjoyed this much more than the first time I tried it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Doughy, bready malt smell with knotty hop background. Creamy looking bright amber color, features some slimy lace. Semi-sweet malt taste, bitter in a way that is chalky or stoney. Could be labeled as a ’double red’ IPA, the style that’s malt forward bit still on the bitter side. Thick coating bodied beer, had the feel of coffee with cream. Plus .1 for the awesome can design with a literal fascist pig.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
can. pours slightly hazy red with a nice off-white head, some retention and lacing. fruity caramel, toasted, spicy and doughy malts, grass, strawberry-like hops, warming alcohol, citrus. average to moderate carbonation, medium body - oily but not too heavy, bold spicy-citrusy finish. tad too sweet though. actually enjoyed this caramel-forward brew, maybe because of rye presence and assertive hoppiness.
