3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle... Beautiful, toasted amber ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Terrific retention. The earthy, malty aroma supplies heaps of caramel, tons of pink grapefruit and a touch of damp leather. Tastes like bitter grapefruit rind blended with caramel, Novocain and ethanol. Full-bodied and creamy with moderate carbonation. Lightly bitter, extremely astringent finish. Not a whole lot of subtlety here. Kudos to growler for splitting the bottle with me!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber pour, off white head. Caramel malt, spicy hops, and citrus make up the nose. Flavor is an odd malt taste with some muted hops. Something doesn’t sit right with this beer. It is almost really good then almost not so good. Enigma.
