3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft… Hunahpu’s Day 2011… Pours clear and black with flashes of ruby around the edges of the glass. Piney, hempen hops and burnt malt are the aromatic standouts. Medium-bodied and fizzy. The flavor leans slightly bitter with plenty of black malt and herbal hops. Short, crisp, mostly clean finish. Refreshing.

3/18/11. On tap. Mild roasted aroma with big citrusy catpee hops. Bigger roasted coffee and chocolate flavor again lingering with citrus hops. If not for the watery body and somewhat watery flavor, this wouldn’t be half bad.

Kind of resembles a slightly hoppy porter. A bit like a dulled down Jose Marti, with some coffee notes, a piney hop quality, and a body that’s a bit too thin. Drinkable but not something I’m in a rush to have again.

On tap at Proof, pours with a slight tan head. Deep malty aroma, has a bit of gritty hoppiness. Slightly malty. Not to shabby, probably my favorite Swamp Head brew.

Half pint, on-tap. Nice dark color that has typical aroma qualities of toasted malts and nice citrus hop profile.The body of this beer is thin and light and has a slightly sweet and light hoppy finish. The malts really do round out this beer nicely. I would have another one.

draft @ redlight redlight. Big floral hop nose, piney and citrusy, very resinous. Pours black with a thin tan head. Bitter hops upfront with hints of roasted malts but the hops really come through, piney and resinous with traces of grapefruit and bitter orange. Very nice!
