Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - APR 9, 2009
Bottle. Pours a dark brune with a creamy tan head. Spicy fruity spritz pepper and apple aroma. Cinnamon and some yeasty spices. Sweet cane sugar with vinous hints and some apple like sweet and tart flavor. Some alcohol warming that is well masked by the spiciness and moderately sharp carbonation. Decent brew.

FatPhil (9591) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 22, 2009
330ml bottle (One Pint, Helsinki, Belgian Weeks 2009)
Hazy gold, tiny tight head. Odd rotting meat aroma. In fact, it’s meat and 2 veg. One of the veg’s is asparagus. Soapy taste, also some veg. Finish very hoppy. Yeast removes the quirkiness, and reduces soapiness.
