sandberglar (148) - Scottsdale, USA - DEC 13, 2010
Cloudy orangish bronze color with a beige head that leaves good lacing. Piny hop aroma with some bread notes as well. Initially bitter, but followed up with an overwhelming maltiness and has an interestingly sticky resinous finish. Like others have mentioned, it doesn’t really taste like an ESB, more like an IPA. Either way, judging as an ESB, or IPA, it’s a decent beer.

Transparent, orangish amber color. Medium bodied. A good amount of lemon acidity with a sweet bready foundation.

WillRunForBeer (557) - Massachusetts, USA - MAY 17, 2014
From notes. Taster at the source. Pours orange gold with an off white head. Aroma of bread and cat piss. Flavor of dark bread, grassy bitterness. Unremarkable.

jesperhammer (2838) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 15, 2013
15-OCT-2013, bottle @home, present from Limoncelloman. Thx:-) Hazy orange with off-white head. Hoppy aroma with grape fruit and pine. Taste the same. Quite malty with caramel and bread. Fine body, med. carbonation. Really a heavy bitter IPA. Not malty enough to be an American Strong Ale.

Ed5388 (1975) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - JUN 17, 2013
22oz bomber. Pours a hazy light brown color with a finger of tan head. Not sure if this is an old bottle, but aroma of strong caramel malts. Taste of roasted and caramel malts, resin, and earthy hops.

Scrapersnbeer (1466) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 5, 2013
Caramel starch and stone aroma. Every Rock Art product has this, so I’ve given up on thinking each bottle is just old. Murky tan to brown color. Heavy unspecific bitterness rises and falls over a sickly sweet backbone. Relatively heavy body and obvious alcohol presence. Whenever I see something labeled EXTREME I am mentally taken to kayaking in a 7-11, but $1.50 for a beer dubbed ESB Squared (or cubed perhaps), how could I not?

MadRobin (1858) - Silver Spring, USA - FEB 27, 2013
Poured from 22 oz. bottle. Clear, bright amber-orange with large 3-finger yellow-cream head and very good lacing. Aroma of pine, earthy citrus, bread and caramel. Taste of pine, earthy citrus, grass and grain. The earthy citrus is like the lemon aroma in many household cleaning products. I do not mean that in a bad way, but it does bring back those memories. Medium body and high/medium carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AdamJackson (2380) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 1, 2013
Brown hazy. 3 finger hint of yellow head Nose is pineapple and mango. Some nutty characters. Very bitter sort of astringent pine cones and maple syrup. Super dry astringent finish. Fruity at times

annunz123 (852) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 22, 2012
Caramel, citrus, and some flowery hops in the aroma. Flavor is bready with caramel, brown sugar, and dark fruit. Pine bitterness, more citrus, and a little alcohol in the finish. I’ve had a few other things from this brewery that were decent at best, but this is outstanding.

dagimp (700) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 25, 2012
From a bomber purchased at a health food store in Burlington Vermont. Pours a murky, unfiltered brownish. Lots of white frothy head and lacing as well. Aroma is very nice. Skunky, earthy, musty aroma with some mushrooms as well. Mouthfeel is moderate with a bit too much carbonation. Taste is bitter with skunk, wood, dirt, moss, chalk and lime. Overall, pretty good. Never been a fan of rock art, and this didn’t change my mind, but its worth a drink.
