Hazy toffee/amber colored pour. Small off-white head. Not much lacing as it quickly races away. Very nice acetic note. Not overpowering. A nice malty undertone mixed in with the funk. Very tart at first but quickly replaced with a slightly watered down malty taste. Burnt crackers. Sweetish finish. A little thinner in the back than I would like, but a very good beer.

Bottle from South Bay Drugs: After unscrewing the wire the cork exploded out and snapped the wire in a huge explosion. I’m so glad it didn’t blow up in my face because that was some explosion. Second complaint I have about this beer is the aroma, it has a strange smell of a non-alcoholic malted beverage. The flavor is just the same and instead of tasting like a beer it taste very similar to a bottle of Malta Goya which I don’t care for too much.

On tap at Churchkey. Nose is dry and herbal with faint bread crust. Flavor is dry and mildly fruity. Very odd. Hard to describe. Herbal excess somewhere.

Tap at Churchkey for the Craft Brewers Conference. Poured a clear amber color with a slightly off-white head. Aroma smells like wet socks. Not a fan - flavor was marginally better, some funk notes herbal notes, yeast. Not a huge fan of this particular one.

A hazed reddish dark amber with a thick frothy mocha head, gusher. In aroma, a sour malt with cherries, brett, dark fruits, fruit sourness, OK. In mouth, a nice sweet caramel malt with fruity notes, cherries, sour yet still good.

On draft at The Brass Tap, poured a cloudy amberish color with aromas of light funk, sweetness, light pepper, and some bread. Flavors are the same with some bubble gum added and a light alcohol finish.

Trade with Daknole, 2009 vintage. Here’s my Mardi Gras beer for tonight. In a big Duvel tulip. A darker amber pour with a thin layer of bubbles. Sweet and malty smell with more alcohol to the nose that it should be showing. Taste is bubbly first, and carries that alcohol note right on through. Toasty malts among slight bourbon flavors. A bit of yeast funk, even a touch of cheese. But all in the service of a strong ale with slight mead and other notes. Alcohol again in just the right proportions.
