muzzlehatch (4420) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUN 8, 2008
1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Draught pint at the brewpub (March 2008). A dirty, murky, impenetrable medium-brown body with no head whatsoever and leaving virtually no lacing as it is drained....light root/woody touches to the mostly bready, lightly alcoholic, somewhat vegetal aroma....body is somewhat sour, malty/bready and more than a touch alcoholic, rather unclean and off-tasting, only vaguely "Belgian" in character but not really anything else either, just a fairly generic and unpleasant, poorly-made strong ale. Like an overly thick and strong-flavored malt liquor, I guess.
