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!

Not bad. Pours a amber brown with an off-white head. Aroma is kind of boozy and malt with a faint hop note. Taste is a little boozy, sweet malt, bitterness, and faintly sweet citrus on the end. Finishes a little overly sweet to hide the alcohol. Overall it’s not bad but not fantastic either. A little forgettable.

Poured from the tap. Light orangey brown with white head. Mild caramel, malt, citrus hops, subtle alcohol. Good balance.

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.

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.

"there’s a lot going on in there, but it’s kind of chaotic, as the flavors don;t always mesh. comes out a little much on the palate...overpowering was a good word, and bitter."

Beautiful dark hue with really rich flavors. Tar-like finish prevents perfect rating but otherwise a brilliantly robust and uniquely hoppy beer. On tap at Beermiscuous in Chicago, IL. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap@nkbar. Brown dark amber. Plummy, sweet raisins, vinous notes on nose. Intensive, sweet figsy, light oaky. Well bittered though, doesn’t stick nor cloy. Long finish. Intensive flavourful barley wine- like asa. Flavourwise a winter warmer, but has a bit of a thinner body than beers I’m used to tasting like this.
