3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very strange beer. Pours dark purplish black with white head. Nose is red licorice, Bazooka Joe bubblegum and medicine. Taste is similar with light fruits. No hint of alcohol even though it’s 10% abv. It’s very close to drinking straight cough medicine.

Aroma of caramel, hops and roasted toffee. Appearance is murky brown with light tan head. Flavor matches the nose, with some spiced hop character. Palate is lively. Strange. Maybe I just don’t get it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle at a recent tasting.
The beer pours a light brown color with a white head. The aroma is very odd, smelling exactly like fruity pebbles. The aroma is similar, as if you dropped a couple of sticks of licorice into a bowl of fruity pebbles breakfast cereal. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not sure if this is what the brewers intended, but it is interesting.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to Skyview’s generosity at DLD. Dark brown pour with a beige head. Dark fruit aroma, with tons of spices. I found it hard identifying all of them-coriander, orange pell, so many others. Taste was like the aroma, only magnified. The carbonation pushed the flavor throughout my mouth.
