Pours an amber color with a medium white frothy head that leaves some nice lacing. Aroma is some spices, alcohol....Tastes like green apple, with some weird alcohol notes....scotch, or rum. Just weird. Ick.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle: Poured a deep pitch-brown ale with a light foamy head with good retention and no lacing. Aroma of sweet malt with some distinguishable alcohol. Taste is also dominated by some overly sweet malt which are kind of gross with some hot alcohol ester. Light body with average carbonation. No subtlety or complexity and not something I am looking for ever drinking again.

Tasted on 10/27/11 from a 500mL bottle purchased at Binnyís South Loop. Pours a nearly opaque dark amber with just a tint of light allowed through, and a thick tan head that slowly recedes to rocky lace, leaving uneven lacing along the inside of the glass. The nose is a really weird, hot, grape juice, date, and fig aroma. The flavor is the same strange grape, vinous, date, and prune juice as the nose. The body is light, with lively, fizzy carbonation, and a short, but hot prune, date, and grape juice finish.

Pours a hazy dark. Aroma is sweet dark fruits. Medium bodied with low carbonation. Sweet, syrupy, and flat tasting. Tastes like a non-alcoholic dark beer or a "beer-flavored" drink. Not good.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
It pours a very dark brown with a 1 finger head with good retention and lacing.
The aroma is really bad and strong. It just smells like bad alcohol mixed with bananas.
The taste is even worse. There is light banana and lots of alcohol with a spit out bittereness.
Mouthfeel is poor and this is not drinkable.

Bottle. Pours reddish black with lacy beige head. The aroma is polyurethane and yogurt-covered raisins. The flavor is much the same, strong polyurethane, some raisin, a little bit of vanilla. This is pretty hard to drink.

Just going to take this as a beer: Dark brown colour. Some concord grape juice and molassesy accents. Sourish character with grape juice and maybe blackberry.

Bottle... Very dark brew (hazy orange when held up to light) with a small, fizzy, white head. Smells like sake and dark fruit. Light-bodied with extremely fizzy carbonation. Tastes like bad, cloyingly sweet sake. Finishes sweet and watery.
