22 oz bottle shared by voodoofish65usf. Pours a hazy brown color with a large off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, apple brandy, hint of infection, but nothing that seems way off, the bottle blew half on the table and some people.

Infected... Very, very infected, but itís still sweet with plenty of apple and cinammon. I donít like the aroma at all though since it reminds me of apple and puke.

Infected?yes Putrid? Not quite. Half the bottle gushed. We should get a replacement for this one. Flavor is sweet, Apple, whiskey, light manure. I bet this is good when itís not infected.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
I feel genuinely terrible for the people who got infected bottles because this beer is majestic on draft. Murky ugly ass beer but the nose is straight up christmas/turkey day with loads of apple and cinnamon and a bit of nutmeg. Rich rich beer but not so sweet that it is tough drinking. Even on this mildly warm South Florida November afternoon it feels appropriately seasonal. Just delicious.

Absolutely terrible. Gushed all over the place when it was opened. Smells like a wet fart mixed with some of the intended aromas. Taste is very infected and thats the end of it. Poured the rest down the drain, sort of like they should have done.
