2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle and served in a nonic pint glass; Pours a mahogany brown hue with frothy fading head and very good lace. The aroma has notes of citrus, pine, roast, anise, char,, pipe tobacco and bread. The taste is mostly ashy roast with a fair amount of fruity hops and faint diacetyl. The mouth feel is tannic and tea-baggy, very dry and honestly not has refreshing as i would like. Color me disappointed for I had high hopes for this beer since NG does such a nice job with most styles but this one is just to mundane and flawed to make me ever want another, alas I have another bottle from the "winner box" to drink.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle from MOTORHEADTODD. Poured a slightly thinner looking super deep Tootsie Roll brown with a smaller super light beige foamy smaller head. Aroma of lightly burnt yellow grapefruit, burnt toast, darker chocolate, grassy, burnt hops. Body is medium and creamy with lighter to average carbonation, overall nice. Flavor is similar with darker lightly burnt citrus fruits, tropical fruits, tangarine, roasty, hint of chocolate. Good stuff.

Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Nice pine nose. Lots of pine resin hops and bitterness in the finish. A touch of sweetness still in the finished too. A really well balanced beer. Very easy to drink.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, thanks jack Fretty for picking this up for me. Fresh straight from Wisconsin. Pours black with a steady yellow tan head, lots of sticky lace. Nose is very hoppy for the style (which I like)--lots of citrus and floral notes. Similar flavor--roasted malts are restrained but not completely absent. Easy drinking with a citrusy finish. Alcohol super well hidden. Another fantastic new Glarus beer. No, I’m not surprised.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is a great beer. Slightly spicy hop aroma, with roasted undertones. Nearly black appearance, but not quite. Creamy palate, but the taste is a wonderful malty pleasure with just the right amount of bitterness. Hops are a subtle blend of piney and citrus, with a pleasantly long and smooth finish. If only I lived in Wisconsin.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Up front hop aroma ...initially one side just great hop aroma and taste ala moon man which is fine... I thought just like American ipa... No black... But as u drink it a different bitterness exhibits itself with a little deeper malt back... Not as predominate as most black iPas and taste wise I still put it in the American ipa category... But good beer I love drinking it!

Great aroma, nice citrus hop scent with a malty undertone. The taste is good but not exactly to style, blindfolded this would get mistaken for a traditional ipa. Good but not what I was hoping for.

Drinking this out of the bottle, the aroma is a classic pale ale with the exact hops they use for moon man. Some malt, but all hops
Taste is very similar to moon man. I really wouldn't be able to tell the difference between a pale ale and a porter, so the malts they use only adds color and not flavor.
