UPDATED: APR 8, 2014 Bottle: Dark copper, brown, highly opaque and hazy, capped with an off-white head that doesnít last for long at all. The smell was not great... strong off-putting metallic notes with medicinal fruits... just unappealing. Taste isnít as bad... less metallic. Slight toffee and caramel, toasted malt; not much chocolate, really. I get a little chili powder mid-palate that gives off a meaty vibe. Not bad, but weird. Very, very light wheat body. Thin, crisp mouth feel with tight carbonation. Strange beer. Different and mysterious... but not in a good way.

Pours a murky light brown with a nice white head. Smell of wheat, spice and chocolate. Taste is almost like the smell chili spice chocolate and wheat.

Heathen (1458) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 27, 2013
THOUGHTS: Not great, but not awful. Great marketing. Donít let this one get too warm. Much better cooler. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a muddy, light to medium brown with an average, off-white head that mostly diminished. The aroma had light to moderate dark bread, chocolate, wheat, and nutty malt; slight citrus; hints of chili spices that were almost cinnamon like. The initial flavor was moderately sweet and lightly acidic; while the finish was moderate to heavily sweet, moderately acidic and slightly bitter with a short duration. There was citrus, wheat, hint of chocolate, coffee and nutty malts, hint of chili spice at the bottom of the glass. The medium body was watery with fizzy carbonation and a slightly astringent finish.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured brown with a medium off white head. Aroma is not too strong maybe some malts, fruits, spices and grain. Taste,consistent with aroma, this beer has a lot going on and perhaps that not necessarily a good thing. Light bodied and refreshing when cold but other than that Iíll have to say that Iím not fan.

Ummm, what is this supposed to be? Tastes like a home brewerís first experiment. Too many differnet things going on, which donít mix well. Stout, dunkel, witbier all mixed together. Looks good on paper, not so good in the glass....

No strong aromas. Subtle notes of malt and spice. Dark brown with a one head. Balanced without distinction or strong flavors. Light bodied with a quick finish.

12 oz bottle from a M&M 6-pack. Pours a hazy medium brown color with average off-white head and some lacing. Aroma is full of sweet malts, bread, vegetables and some plums. Hardly spicy at all, except in the aftertaste. Body is light to medium with soft carbonation. Taste is sweet with a slightly metallic finish. Iíd call this one a watered-down doppelbock. Not as bad as I had feared, given this big brewerís reputation here. At least I didnít have to buy 6 of them.
