3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle into a Teku glass. Huge thanks to bstyle.
A – Pours a dark, red hued brown body. Crazy amounts of dark grey foam. It was a real effort just to get a standard pour it would foam up so much. Crazy lacing and retention, this stuff just clumps onto the glass and stays forever.
S – Some faint citrus and fruity esters, pilsner malt, grass and light charred malts.
T – Faded piney hops, clean pilsner malt and Belgian yeast fruits followed by some lightly roasted malt and a lingering bitterness. Very drinkable yet very forgettable. Mouth feel is creamy and rich, very nice.
O – A very average but drinkable beer. The fact that the label is unbelievably bad ass completely makes up for it though.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Most explosively carbonated lager I have seen. Smell is pils malt, bready, nice herbal hoppiness. Mouthfeel is extremely carbed. It has a nice mix of male malt and a hint of roased malt. Nice earthy and herbal hops, some lemon. This is a really great beer but has a pretty over-carbonated presence.

Bottle at James’ place. Pours brown with an off white head. Lightly roasted malts, light toasty notes, and lightly bitter floral hops. Not a bad beer in a style I tend to like.

Bottle at James’ place for a tasting. Pours a deep brown with a large beige head. Light smoke, a touch of paper. A bit sweet and papery again, more smoke. Lingering smoke. A bit off.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to GT2. Cloudy brown pour with fluffy head. Nose and flavor bring nice ashen and roasted malt character, though with a lighter, wheat-style body. Pils hop character, spicy, almost as if some rye malt might have been used? Very herbal, particularly in the flavor. Good and tasty, but not really enticing.
