COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"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.

Beautiful dark ruby color with small tan head. Aroma is light and tart, with some banana and coriander. Flavor has nice caramel malts with spices and cinnamon, balanced with light piney hops. Very unique and okay overall.

pictoman (667) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 24, 2015
Poured from 1 pint 6 fl oz bottle. Clear brown with reddish hue and off-white head. Caramel malt, light toffee and roast malt, subtle dark fruit. Fairly decent, but not overly complex. Blend is just okay.

trapped (939) - New York City, TURKEY - JAN 23, 2015
Bottle. Perihelial Release (I’m not tooo late since perihelion was 3 Jan) with an ABV of 9.1%. Dark amber with reddish tint, large spongy beige head, faint vanilla like aroma, caramel-burnt malt taste, medium carbonation, smooth medium finish with a burnt aftertaste. Quite smooth to drink and a loveble eyeball indeed!

Bottle: Pours clear dark brown, red lights, with a slightly off-white ring. Caramel, fruit, sugar aroma. Taste is sweet....caramel malt, berry... Alcohol is wondrously hidden, with a slight warming nature......slightly woody.... Incredibly smooth, and very tasty. Nicely done.

Poured from a bomber into a tulip on 06.19.14. A: 3 1/2 finger tan head. Nearly see through red/caramel body. S: Brown sugar, maple syrup, and caramel. Sweet smelling. T: Brown sugar, pineapple, and maple syrup. M: Creamy. O: This would be a good dessert beer. It’s a brown sugar bomb. The alcohol is hidden very well. All round, it’s a great winter warmer.

Malty, caramel flavors, not much alcohol roughness, wouldn’t know it is 9%. Looks pretty damn good in the glass by the way.

jefcon (1434) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JAN 13, 2015
Plummy and light licorice. Not astringent, even at 9 percent. A balanced winter warmer, and it’s ruby red in the glass -- very inviting. There’s a little pine tar bitterness underneath the sweet palate.
