Can from Masuyo’s back in 2013. Burnt molasses and roasted malt on the nose. The palate is messy: burnt bread, maple syrup and sorghum, and boozy. Flavors don’t come together at all. SORRY, it sucked.

12 ounce can purchased at Bottle Barn in Santa Rosa. The aroma has some roasted notes with a little rubbery character and some anise, too. Light pool toys. Somewhat transparent dark mahogany body with a smallish light tan head that is quickly dissipating. Starts with a bit of a sweet chalky cocoa like flavor. The middle has some slippery, sweet buttery diacetyl. Lowly carbonated. A bit of anise flavor is in the finish. Sweet, undercarbonated, diacetyl-ridden beer.
