3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 11, 2005 Bottled. Great stuff. Nice malty aroma behind a head that disappears a little too quickly. Taste of orange and some light spiciness comes through, finishes off with a note of red wine.
Re-rate, 4/10/05. Okay, this was one of my earlier ratings, and I finally had a second bottle from my original sixer (others have gone out in trade). My impressions still hold true, but it’s just not worth the 4.1 I first assigned. A slight note of brett mars the second sampling, but this is a two-year old bottle. I had taken the name of the style literally and was cellaring it outside my fridge, probably not a good idea for a 5.9% beer.

Draft in Chicago. Nice BdG aromas but like so many starts a bit sweet for me. Some nice bitterness cleans it up a bit. I drank this in about five minutes after a long day of travel so hard to say too much. I enjoyed it though.

Aroma of sulfur and malty funk. Flavor is strongly sulfur but with a carbonic bite and a malt wall. Finish is dry.

Bottle. Golden brown, thin white head. A little fizzy, but not much. Pleasant flavour, a bit fruity and unusual.

Caramel and bread notes in the nose. Crystal clear copper with white head. Nice lacing. Caramel and alcohol in the taste. A little too thin. And kinda boring finish.
