0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Quite the odd mix here and wondering if the brewer was actually serious by releasing this. Some pineapple notes are distinguishable within the mess. One of the worst beer I had the misfortune to try.

Bottle opened up at the 2013 year end Ottawa tasting, given to me by Matt at Capones as a thank you, but even though it was quite limited not sure if he gave it tongue in cheek. Dark brown with no head. Good lord what were they thinking - pinneaple, toothpaste, ether, some vomit, funk, moderate carbonation, unpleasant mouthfeel, wish I had more to "share"!

1.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
murky plum, thinnest white bubble ring. Fusel and vomit nose, bit of oats but who honestly cares.. it smells like vomit. Flavor stings back of throat immediately, light roast and passion fruit throughout, but very burnt, sugary, oppressive profile and palate. Reminds of Mikkeller Black series.
