3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled from a 16.9 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark brown color with ruby highlights and a large tan head. The aroma was sour vegetal malts and molasses. The flavor was sour and sweet vegetal malts with a long tangy finish. Too much like V8 for me to really enjoy.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2010 Light brown, a little muddy, with a fast dissapearing head. The aroma is quite powerful, but I can’t really describe it. It has of course malts, but also a weird grassy, earthy tone. The flavor has chocolate, malts, the earthy tone, and then a slight bitter finish. Dry beer, with medium body. It has some schwarzbier elements I think, but it suits it fine. A very fine brew, but I would prefer Rebel Cerný to this one.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Has a nice malty aroma, rich with burnt sugar and molasses. A bit brothy, though, with Tootsie Roll and carbonic gassiness. Light bitter grassy hops. Dark brown clear with reddish tint. Rocky light tan head with some lacing. Medium-light watery body with heavy carbonation. Malty start with rich notes of molasses and toffee, brown sugar and some coffee. Dusty grain and hay. Finish is somewhat bitter but more of a dry nutty character. After is nutty and dry with tangy molasses notes. Not really complex but a decent dunkel.
