Bottles and tried on tap at Joe Canals a couple years back when they changed their name. Pours deep brown with light beige head, nose was pine, earth, toffee, nuts and some malts. Flavor was floral hops, light spice, caramel, bitter cocoa and roasted nuts. Wish the real stuff was in this one, oh well, theres always extract.

Bottle. Nose is pleasantly roasty and chocolaty, pours deep dark brown with an ephemeral beige head. Taste is lightly sweet with light bitterness (good balance here), earth and chocolate and light caramel, some light fruit in the back and faint hops. Smooth, inky feel in the fullish body. Very easy-going, very nice.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured a finger and half of head on a dark amber colored body.
The aroma is earthy with some grain. A nice smell I had encountered in a beer before.
The taste has a metallic tone with vegetables and malt. It’s interesting.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
The metallic and vegetable taste did not work for me.

Thanks for this one, Harold. Nose is earthy, with roasted notes and toasted bread followed by a light caramel note. Pour is brown with a thin off-white head. Taste is similar. Very nice.

This beer was unique for what it was. It smelled like a greenhouse full of lettuce and peanuts. Flavors were good and nutty but the body was rather thin. The flavor was silky and earthy with a nice herbal-bready twang. I really don’t know, I was only trying to collect 5,000 coins until my dog contracted a severe allergic reaction to science-knows-what. Cheers!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Poured a clear, dark mahogany brown color with one finger head. Nice aroma of mostly hazelnut, vanilla, and slight caramel malt. Taste has some earthy, hay type flavors (maybe those are the hemp seeds). Below average carbonation. Medium light body. Smooth and easy to drink.

On tap at The Old Toad. Clear dark mahogany amber with a beautiful full and foamy light beige head. Aroma of earthy toffee and some light herbalness with a sight dank tone. Flavor is full bodied on a nice sessionable palate. Roasty and earthy toffee with a gentle herbal bitterness, and pleasant malty sweetness on the finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Mahognyfärgad öl med ett litet smitsvitt skum. Lätt rostade toner i doften tillsammans med en maltig sötma och torkad frukt. Bra balans mellan karamellsötma, rostade toner och bitterhet. Även en lätt kryddighet (hampafröna?) En lättdrucken öl som ändå har karaktär.
