3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Healthy Spirits, San Francisco. Pours dark brown with a fluffy tan head and a treacle aroma. There is a fairly bitter toasty dark molasses flavor with a mild citrus finish. Not a bad tasting beer in spite of the relatively low ratings.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
From a bottle.I thought this beer was a little too earthy for myself. The pour was a dark brown with a slight brown head.Taste like dead leaves.Maybe this beer is dedicated to the later performances of Bad Brains.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from 16 Tons Taphouse, Eugene. Pours a very dark brown, almost opaque. LOTS of off-white head. Aroma crisp, with a bit of resin and just a dash of roastiness. Body very lively, finish sharp, spicy, lingering roasty bitterness. Would have liked it better fresh and/or on tap, still not bad.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   Murky brown, dark, very foamy beige head, decent lacing.   Not as dark as others, and certainly
more foamy or overcarbonated.   Faint sweet maltiness, very non-descript, a little roasty.   Seems a bit more hoppy
and sweet on the tongue than the style usually averages.   Its also very bubbley/spritzy on the tongue.   More
hoppy than others for sure!   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes like a soft hoppy Schwarzbier, that is a
bit too overcarbonated.   Doesn’t have that typical schwarzbier mouthfeel or finish.   Okay, but certianly
different.   Does it makes sense to say it seems more like an Ale than a Lager?

Flavor is fruity, roasted. A bit of metal in the finish. Actually, make it too much. Can’t make out much more...light body, average carbonation. Yeah. This sucked. The rating, I mean. The beer was alright.
