3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Engine 15 (JAX).
Dark reddish-brown body that is topped by a decent head. Looks like light bourbon.
Nice but faint aroma suggests sweet and smoked malts.
Flavor: good bitter-sweet balance. Smokey ... way more smokey than any alt bier I’ve had.
The body is smooth, medium bodied,and well (medium) carbonated.
Overall. too smokey for style for my taste.

2.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Tastes like sweat, leather, cigars, and dirty engine’s. I guess that is why it’s named "Mad Max".

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
on tap @ Engine 15 / Jacksonville FL --- Clear, dark caramel amber color, thick tan head cover, a solid wall of lace. Taste is caramel malt that grows cleanly into the palate, adding light hops and solid carbonation in the finish. A little hot pepper enters at the tail end, just enough to be noted. A satisfying brew.
