Brewpub exclusive on tap. Pours a dark reddish brown color with a thin light tan head. Aroma of roasted malts with a hint of cherry, and very earthy. Taste is earthy, roasty smoke, some chocolate, and a hint of peppery spice. beachbum25 (1092) - Powellville, Maryland, USA - NOV 15, 2012
On tap @ the Brewpub-Copper/amber pour w/a moderate head. Malty aroma. Some maly, a little yeast, some grain, certainly didn’t taste all that other stuff they talked about! It was ok, nothing more. Not up to what I usually expect from these folks ROGUE (2216) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - MAY 9, 2012
On tap at Brewpub. Pours a deep amber color with a two finger light tan head and a touch of lacing. The aroma has a honey sweetness over a mild spiciness. The taste has caramel maltiness, honey, Belgian yeast spiciness and a slight hop bitterness that carries through the finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation and crisp flavors thoughout. drunkenpolack (322) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - MAR 13, 2012
It pours a ruby red color, thin white head is formed. The aroma is pretty strong here like I said. Very sweet aroma from the honey with underlying spiciness and pepper. Caramel malt backbone. I will say this about this brew, I’ve never tasted a saison like this. So many ingredients here but in the end I don’t think they really meld together really well. While the fiance and I thought this was better than the first beer we had, it was a bit funky, weird, and just didn’t work well. The taste is spicy from the pepper and the rye. Sweetness from the candi syrup, molasses, and honey. Mouthfeel was medium bodied with a dry finish. I’ll give this beer this, it’s unique. Just to much going on and it doesn’t mesh really well together. sonnycheeba (6437) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 18, 2012
