COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We brewed this especially bitter ale in dedication to all the world’s would-be astronauts, in remembrance of the 2005 St. Patrick’s Day Massacre on the Brewery Party Grounds and also in joyous celebration of our 20-day suspension that following January. Do the crime. Do the time. Get the bragging rights. Cheers!

On draft at Sharp Edge Brasserie. Poured hazy copper with minimal head and tons of lacing. Nice floral nose. Sweet, malty, citrusy, piney. Well balanced and a little chewy. Not boozy at all.

Svesse (6634) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - FEB 23, 2015
(Bottle) Amber colour with lasting, frothy, off-white head, leaving traces of lacing. Fruity, hoppy nose with grapefruit, orange marmalade, treacle toffee, caramel, honey, apricots and lots of fresh hops. Malty, hoppy taste with notes of grapefruit, orange peel, caramel, treacle toffee, honey and lots of fresh, citric hops in a finish with a generous bitterness. More than medium body, with a certain sweetness. Tasty beer with a fresh, generous hop character and a touch of alcohol in the finish. Very nice.

ninecats (214) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - FEB 20, 2015
Backlog, originally 2013. Clear copper, big compact white foam that dissipates slowly, leaving some lacings. Aroma is big malty, seeet, citrus, some alcohol. Taste is bitterly sweet, some sourness in between, lots of lingering hops, big malty flavours, alcohol. Medium to big body, medium carbo, sticky texture. Pretty straight up big on all accounts, almost barley wine-ish.

Quite strong and thick. A little bitter but still enjoyable. Creamy and cloudy in some features too.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tumbler on 04.18.14. A: 2 1/2 finger head. See through red. S: Pine, grapefruit, ketchup, malt. T: Sweet malt, grapefruit, ketchup. Caramel is there too. M: Creamy smooth. O: Sweet malt comes on first, then grapefruit, ketchup, and some alcohol burn at the end. The malt turns into caramel which lingers. It was like a barleywine, but with a little less hop presence. The alcohol burn was not as strong as I thought that it would be.

2year old bottle,2012 batch. Nice caramelly toffe orange flavour, smells like a belgian dark malty candy sugar, rummy and sweet. Being 2 Y old very nice my guess it still has more mellowing out left in it, should have kept a bottle for another year.

Brandon1989 (384) - Euless, Texas, USA - DEC 8, 2014
Pours a clear copper with a thick white head. The aroma is very hoppy and some fruit to it. The taste is pretty strong. There is a hop bitterness right away as well as the alcohol. The finish is where you can pick up the dark fruits and some slight breadiness. The beer lingers but has a good aftertaste.

Bottle thanks to my coworker Ed. Old bottle from March. Pours a deep copper color with a slight white head. Aromas of orange peel and caramel. Light hop aroma left at this point. I’m sure this is a totally transformed beer from when the hops are fresh but still quite good.
