Dark amber color with a medium white head that settles quickly and leaves moderate lacing. Aroma of licorice and black pepper. Flavor has licorice, lots of hops and lots of malts. Could be better balanced.

Old rating copied over from another site.
Poured into a nonic pint, this is a fairly clear beer, amber in color with a finger of soapy off-white head. A nice bread character to it. Earthy and slightly citrusy hops (orange peel, for the most part), and a subtle toasted character. A touch of pepper is there and maybe a hint of grass. Flavor is surprisingly heavy on the citrus peel and grass. A slight hop bitterness with a decent earthy quality. Bread, toast, and hints of toffee provide the malt character. yeast is also prominent. Light to medium in body with a moderate carbonation. Easy to drink, clean, and crisp.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Archer Liquors. Light copper color with a transient, temporarily impressive off-white head. Aromas of pale malt and saaz? hop. Near medium body with fizzy/frothy carbonation. Flavor is amazingly bitter, almost overpowering the light malt. Comes a bit bready, but finishes nicely bitter and fairly dry. 30 IBU seems a good number.
