Strong aroma. Very pleasant. Almost like sherry. Totally cool label with a pirate cat! Powerful flavor, warming effect. I wouldn’t mind drinking this in front of a fire place in winter time.

One of the best beers I’ve had in a long time. Elegant, distinctive, very drinkable and even a cute label to boot. Can’t wait to try more of the Jolly Pumpkins offerings. Great stuff!

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - JUL 19, 2005
Deep amber color, almost brown, tan head. Interesting, malty, spicy, mild funk, anise. Medium bodied, somewhat alcoholic, especially for only being 7.2%. Kind of a strange beer, but I dug it for the most part.
