Sampled in a bomber from a sampler pack. A really nice brew. Juniper and earthy flavors are really quality. Great brew.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber into snifter glass. Deep clear ruby brown with tan head, very bubbly. Aroma of caramel malt sweetness and slight herbal/citrus note. Taste seems to go another direction from aroma, malt sweetness is subdued with notes of pine, toast, assorted herbs, fruitiness, wood, citrus, some honey and slight earthy hoppiness. Medium body, heavy carbonation, herbal, complex with lasting finish. Pretty good, not the juniper berry bomb I expected from reading the bottle.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Menthol beer. Aroma taste flavor all medicine. Not good in my opinion.
Unique but nothing special.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy reddish-brown with an off-white head. Aroma is very sweet and malty, actually smells oxidized. Taste is rather dull, mild-medium sweet with a slight herbal quality. Unimpressive, awesome name though.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A nice mahogany body with a tan head that had good retention and mild lacing. Aroma had some nice caramel malts to it, some mild citrus notes. There seemed to be a heavy presence of vanilla and wood and a slight sweetness to it. Not really sure about the juniper berries. Flavor was mostly sweet, but nowhere near cloying. Some nice spice notes and there was a presence of vanilla as well. Finish was smooth and the body was moderate. Nice beer.
