Sample @ Brewvival 2014. Deep amber pour with a small head. Smoked berry and earthy malt nose. Similar flavor. Blackberry jam, compost. Toasty malt and some husky grain character. Medium body, soft carbonation.

Lost... i don’t understand what they were trying to do with this beer. Felt really average across the board so thats how i rated it. I like left hand’s stuff usually but this seemed uninspired. Perhaps a more experienced taster would appreciate more than I?

Kentucky Fried Charleston Trip Beer #77. Wow, seems like some people really hate this beer. I guess I’ll be breaking the trend. Draft at Brewvival. Pours a clear chestnut brown color with a thin frothy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of dark roasted malts, bright fruits, spice. The taste is roasted malts, cherries, earth, herbal hops, chocolate. Thin-medium bodied.

I am normally a fan of Left Hand, but it seems that they gave up in the middle of making this beer.
