3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Awesome 32oz growler from the brewery. Pours a dark reddish brown. Thin disappointing. Pegasus in the head. Aroma is very fruity and also very paint thinners. Now there’s a cock and balls in the head. Now there’s a dog. Flavor starts out with the Old Peculiar "beeryness", but turns back into fruitiness in the finish. Lots of banana. Kristen doesn’t like it; it made her cough. Finish is pretty booby (boozy). Nice underlying malt profile but the fruitiness gets in the way.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Light aroma of dark fruits and paint thinner? Very dark brown pour. Thin head and very thin body. Boozy and watery, not the boys best effort.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
on tap at the brewery. Very dark in color with a small creamy light brown head. Aroma is subtle, a bit of banana and clove. Full bodied with a sticky and thick texture. Flavor is dominated by notes of clove, with a long duration and moderately bitter. Interesting and enjoyable.
