On tap at My Place, Newtown, CT. Have to disagree with Oakes on this one. Found it enjoyable, no matallic or sweat. A bit of spice, nothing too distinguishable though. But can anybody explain the origins of the funky glass?

The draft at Sharp Edge comes in this crazy test tube container witha rounded bottom. The thing won’t stand up on it’s own so there’s a wooden stand to keep it locked upright. The whole contraption looks a little girly so I just get it in a regular glass. Ruby in color with an orange nose. Spicy and sweet with a malty finish. great dessert beer.

HopDevil1979 (117) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 7, 2006
A great sweet treat - a perfect beer to drink when eating custard, flan or creme brulee. A true dessert beer. I also could not figure out how to get the glass out of the wood thing.. Is there a trick?

(Bottle). Dark and hazy amber with a big rich head. Aroma of honey, malt, caramel, toffee, and apricot. Bitter malty flavor, some sweetness, alcohol is not very present (yet). Medium body and boozy ending, yeah!
