Tap at The Blind Tiger. Deep amber pour with a thick pillowy white head. The aroma is nice - some soft earthy hops over a full moderately bready profile. A bit of spice and some dank sort of basement character. Lightly fruity and a touch of soft sweetness rounding it out.

10/9/13 Pours a nice copper/caramel color with a thick head. Beautiful lacing that lasts throughout the drink. Not as hop forward: I taste more of the wheat and rye. Has a delicious creamy feel with a nice dry finish. A very drinkable, solid seasonal brew.

This poured a lighter brown with a beige head. Aroma was of rye, yeast, and dark fruits. Flavor was similar, slightly rustic, but yeast driven and a bit too sweet.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Alchemy. Unfiltered orange-brown body, creamy steady off-white head. Kind of an ingredient overload. Dry, mineral mouthfeel. Unique certainly, has some depth, at least as far as the grain bill. A wacky mix, almost comes off Sorghum-like. Drinkable, but not a World Class venture. Some marmalade tastes. Grows on you. Multi-grain Marzen. OK, kind of awkward.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle from FLBC. Pours hazy copperish orange. Fluffy white head, spotty lacing. Aroma is malt, spice, banana, yeasty esters I guess. Flavor is much the same, but fairly dry and quite creamy mouthfeel. Carbonation is medium-high. Easy to drink, perfect for an October night in upstate New York.
