Sampled at the Guess Who’s Back tasting. Clear light red pour. Great Toffee aroma. Flavor is not quite malty enough. A little thin. Smells better than it tastes, but still not worth the price. cool bottle though.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
(330 ml bottle from Bootleggers) Pours clear coppery amber with a big fat biscuit head that recedes to a big fat lumpy cap. Aroma of skunk (light), hay, honey, sweat, pine and metal. Mouthfeel smooth, almost too smooth (ie., no texture), very light prickliness. Big, foamy, broken rings and gobs of lacing. Flavor is dull and muted - some sort of eggy quasi-caramel but mostly just a bitter, almost metallic taste with very little malt base supporting it. Very filtered, dull quality about it.
