3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2011 I have never had anything by this brewer before. I tried this one on draft at Pipers Pub in Pittsburgh. It poured a very dark red-brown color with a large tan head that lingered and left great lacing. . The aroma was sweet and hoppy with a bit of citrus noted and touches of pepper and toasted caramel. The flavor was fruity (apple and citrus), tart, and had a hint of spice and sour caramel. Medium finish and body. Solid.

I think this brew, being in a clear bottle and all, has a bit of trouble make a quality appearance in the states, very skunked. Aroma is very hard to tell, smells like some toffee and maybe a touch of hops, just hard to say with all the skunked qualities. Taste was a bit better, starts with a quick maltiness, caramel, then finishes with a fairly fruity bitterness. Pours a mahogany red with a small off-white head.
