"Here’s Lookin’ Atcha’!"

Laying there, staring up at the ceiling, head pounding, last night was a dim recollection. How did he get home? Was he alone? Looking to the left and right, the answer was yes, maybe. His head was full of ’rag water, bitters, and the blue ruin’.His teeth felt like he’d been chewing aluminum and his breath smelled like a burning tractor tire. There was a wrenching knot somewhere between his liver and East St. Louis and he couldn’t be sure whether or not he’d wet himself. A yellow sine wave rang in his ears so loud nit made his teeth itch and he was sure that if he touched his skin anywhere it would induce a rhythmic retching jag. Even in the face of all that, he found himself smiling at the realization that today represented the fresh breast of a new year- an undiscovered country- and also there was still one warm, half-full, flat redolent Hairy Eyeball on the nightstand. Yes-there is a God.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - APR 25, 2007
12 oz bottle. Poured a clear garnet color. Head was thick and light tan with good retention and lacing. Rich malty molasses aroma with a hint of soy sauce. Slick, oily mouth feel with a touch of sweetness. Roasty malt flavor up front gave way to brown sugar, resiny hop, and subdued bourbon notes. Finished with ample hop bitterness and a smouldering warmth in the stomach.

jerome6957 (17) - New York, New York, USA - APR 23, 2007
Pours a medium ruby, with a small off-white head that mostly disappears. Heavy aroma of prunes and plums, caramel and syrup, with some light pine resin floating in the sweetness. Flavor sweet, dark and fruity, with flavors of chocolate and a muscular bitter kick chasing down a long, chewy finish. Strong alcohol heat makes it a little harsh and astringent at the end.

12 oz bottle; Nose of grain, brown sugar, caramel, and some light piney hops; clear cherry brown with a medium beige head; flavor of hop bitterness, contrasting with medium sweetness,molasses, amd caramel; the bitterness lasting to the finish in the medium body. Very interesting!

MrRain (472) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 17, 2007
12oz bottle poured in a flute. This beer pours a very nice mahogany color with a very lacy cream-colored head. It smells of molasses and candy. It tastes like bark and has a very strong alcohol finish.

RiverHorse (457) - New Jersey, USA - APR 17, 2007
This beer pours a very dark brown color with a small creamy tan head and nice lacing. The smell is sweet with scents of citrus, pine, carmel and candy dominating. Very strong and lasting taste with an noticable alcohol presence. This is an interesting beer, very complex with sweetness and bitterness fighting for your tastebuds and palate.

georgekappus (296) - Brookfield, Connecticut, USA - APR 14, 2007
A flavorful beer, nice and caramelly. The aroma is not the forefront of this beer, very mild, but the taste is impressive. A nice strong flavor that hits the tastebuds and keeps it there. An enjoyable brew for a cold night, or a warm one for that matter!

I love the smll and look of this deep brown beer. the flavor is a bit sweet to my liking but the palate gives a nice stronger finish with some notes of hops.

frankenkitty (2007) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - APR 11, 2007
Pours a deep garnet/mahogany with faint carbonation under a tan head that fades quickly and laces light. A pleasant aroma of plum, caramel and chocolate chip cookies makes me think this is going to be a sweet brew, yet I’m greeted with a startling bitterness in the flavor. (Sure, there’s a sticky, malty sweetness behind it all, but I was rather taken aback.) As I get accustomed, I begin to appreciate the wacky <a href=www.ratebeer.com/><a href=http://www.feelingretro.com/toy_img/gnipgnop. Gnop battle of sharp contrasts between bitters and sweets. But, like the game, it grates on the nerves after too much exposure.
