COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rochestafarian n. 1. A beer, malty in nature, brewed to honor Rochester, NY. Like the city’s fine funky music, this sweet, full bodied, slightly bitter brew is sure to sway the soul and bring about a feeling of Irie. 2. One who loves 3HB.

Drake (7926) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Bomber from Beer Run. Pours a clear dark red color with a large creamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of toffee, nuts, raisin, earthy hops. The taste is dark fruits, toffee, earthy hops. Dry, medium bodied, thin, off balance. A disappointment.

Bombers from Capone’s and Wegman’s. Pours turbid ruby reddish with minimal off-white head. Nose is earthy nut browny, caramel malt. Tastes metallic, earthy, pretty bad actually. Finishes medium in palate heft with some earthy metallic notes. The first miss from these excellent brewers.

Bottle. Pours a clear ruby with a thin white head. Soft malt on the nose, a touch of light hops. Medium-bodied, a bit of paper comes through over some oxidized plum and old malt notes. Finishes with some malt and a bit of sweetness. Decent enough.

TheBeerGod (5045) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAR 21, 2013
Bottle. Copper pour with a short, foamy tan head. Aroma is sweet with caramel notes and dark fruit. Taste is dark fruit, bitter hops, unripe fruit and caramel. Flavor is oddly bitter based off the aroma. Body is medium with a light, creamy carbonation and soft stickiness. Ends with more fruit notes, caramel, sweet malt and bitter hops.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4547) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 13, 2014
Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a bright orange-brown color with a very large fluffy orange-white head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was sour and nutty - almost vegetal and had touches of dark fruits and canned mushroom juice. The flavor was dryish and woody with hints of smoke, red meat, dark fruit and mushroom juice. Long finish. Moderately full bodied. Not good.

Sampled at esbls. Clear whiskey looking. Malty with a bit of harshness. Soft floral hops. Light drinking.

dwyerpg (4354) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUL 28, 2013
This reminded me more of a vienna than a wee heavy, as it was reddish-brown in color and fairly strong in the caramel/toffee flavors. Certainly doesn’t have any of the super malty/peatiness you’d expect of a wee heavy. Also seems to stick to the tongue. A significant hop finish. Strange brew.
