drowland (7917) - Georgia, USA - JUN 14, 2014
6/14/14. 12oz bottle from Happys in Cedar Falls. Amber red pour with a small khaki head that fades and laces pretty loosely. A couple of whiffs and sips had me searching for a bottle date... with no success. Oxidation on the aroma, old hops, caramel, lots of caramel, toasted caramel, and almost a saltiness. Bitter flavor, dusty, burnt caramel, lots of caramel, some leather and tobacco, and a lingering alcohol burn. Eh.

hfmejias (1282) - Marshall, Minnesota, USA - JUN 4, 2016
On tap at the brewery. Great beer; poured copper brown, clear with white head. Aroma is malty, fruit and hops highlights. Taste is sweet, some roast, some caramel notes and some alcohol. Very good beer and one of my favorites from these guys. Easy to drink and very enjoyable.

12oz bottle to pint. Pours cloudy iced tea color, dissipating off white head. Aroma of pine, fig, grass, raisin. Taste of same with finish of burnt toast and biscuit. Finish is as bitter and dry as they claim.

P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, unbalanced finish. O- I dont really have any good ways to describe this beer, other than it was not to par as far as I felt it should have been.

Bacterial (2931) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Dark amber pour at the Surdyks in MSP Terminal 2 waiting for my flight. Very little head, but it was also served in a cold glass, which is bad bad bad. Bad. Nice biscuit nose with a big hoppy nose (pine and floral). Hoppy, some bitterness and a strong malt taste with a dry bitter finish.

Nutty caramel, pine, floral hops. Light fruit and grains with hints of citrus. Felt a bit light in the body, and not enough carbonation to clean out the aftertaste.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - MAR 15, 2014
On tap. Aroma has notes of toasted caramel malts and bittering hops. Deep hazy amber hue with a small off-white head that left little lace. Flavor is medium sweet and bitter. Palate is medium bodied and oily with an average carbonation. Overall a good brew.
