UPDATED: MAY 26, 2014 Bottle acquired by unknown means. A pitch black appearance light on head. Not much aroma present but closer to malt than hops. Smoother than expected and doesn’t overwhelm with roasted malt or other traditional dark beer traits. Kind of reminds me of a dark Belgian which should serve as a compliment. A little light on flavor and more bitter than desired at the end. Still a good winter or Mpls fall option. Great brewery but they flex their muscles more on other efforts.

Single bottle from Lemon Tree. Pours a light amber color with a bubbly head that settles into suds. Slightly woody smell, light malt nose.Taste has malts and noticeable alcohol. Hops are pretty bitter, yet medicinal. The bottle has a DOB of 4/29/13, so it could be hops, or it could be going phenolic. I still like it, though. Drinking it down just builds up the hops. Like a slap in the face.

12 oz bottle. Aroma is pretty plain, with light fruitiness and grain. Pours clear copper with a one finger off-white head that falls after a minute. Taste starts out sweet before turning bitter. Grainy and licorice flavors with a metallic tinge. Pretty boring. Not what I was expecting.

Botella. Como una láger tradicional pero con más potencia de alcohol, sulfuros y poco lúpulo. Ligeramente dulce de trago facil

Cloudy golden color. Has a light bitter finish and a nice medium body feel. Satisfying, though lacking something that I can’t put my finger on.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber orange color with white head. Aroma of caramel and sweet madurated fruits. Taste of caramel and some bitterness. High drinkabilty for 8 abv. Nice beer. It’s not all about Ipa’s, stouts or sours.

Aroma is malts and mild/medium sweetness. The flavor is malts, spices, fruit and a tart finish. Sort of similar to an Oktoberfest, not bad.

Bottle. Pours a pinkish tinted gold. Medium head with thin film lacing. Aroma of hops with floral undertones. Taste is strong alcohol esters with malted barley. Very different than a typical ale or lager. Almost a high gravity taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
