yeah its a black ale. the brown head.leaves a blanketous lace on the shaker. the aroma... spice/herb/ vegetable. the flavor... the same... generically. Brew a generic beer... that’s what you’re gonna get... a generic rating. drink this if you want to generically taste a spice/herb/vegetable beer.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2013 G F or S F, WTF? First at the bocktown then at the vintage ( 2/2013) First rating: On tap at the bocktwon monaca, nice place. Big large black pour, large and in charge. Fading choco moose head. Nice lacing, quite titlating. Mildly sweet aroma; a little flowery on the olfactory. Very little sizzle impressions. Yes, nice intruiging lace. Very little of that typical stout stuff in here dude. Roasty attributes are lacking. Seems to posses some some odd spices in there. Comes across more bitter than it should for a gentle man stout. Yes, a tad medicinal on the finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle from sefus12, thanks Beau! Pours a black colored body with a bit of a ruby hue and a two finger-width, dense, frothy and creamy, brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is spicy and fruity with lots of Belgian yeast, fruity esters, and piney hops. Touches of licorice, roast, and chocolate with a good amount of pepper and a light clove. Flavor is similar. Lots of spicy Belgian yeast, piney hops with some grapefruit citruses, licorice, touches of chocolate, and a good amount of fruity esters. A lightly bready, somewhat sweet malt backing with a good amount of roasts towards the end as this finishes dry, spicy, estery, and lightly bitter before leaving a lengthy aftertaste with some lemongrass coming through. Medium body and a lively, foamy carbonation. Overall, a pretty cool beer with lots going on. Spicy Belgian yeast and hops with plenty of fruity esters, a good amount of roasts, some licorice, and a light chocolate. Nice one.
