Tart pepper and spices aroma. Appearance is live body with lots of active legs. Quickly diminishing head. Kind of a spiced saison. Flavors are smoke, sour candy, cookie, pepper. Kind of unique even though I am not a huge fan.

Changed (462) - Ithaca, New York, USA - SEP 4, 2015
12 oz bottle. Pours dark dark reddish brown. Tan, lively head, good retention. Aroma is spicy, yeast, dark fruits, roasted malt. Flavor is dark fruit, slightly tart, roasted malt on the finish. Dry, with a creamy finish and lively carbonation to start. Long, slightly spicy finish. ABV seems higher than 6.4%. This beer is nuanced; Im a big fan.

Rustyham (1836) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - JUL 9, 2015
This looks, smells, and tastes like a slightly boozy Irish stout. Taste of rum and roast. Not a lot of floral.

smaynard6000 (1123) - Apopka, Florida, USA - MAY 31, 2015
750ml bottle from 2013. Pours black with a generous beige head. Aroma is a mixture or fruitiness and some roastiness. Fruity and spicy character up front on the palate which is balanced by a roasty finish with just a hint of smoke. Quite good and very interesting.

Savage_Night (434) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 24, 2015
2013 750ml. Pours dark brown with a nice beige head. Head retention is good. AROMA: roasted malts, peppercorn, herbal/floral hops, caramel, chocolate, light coffee, slight citrus, smoke, vanilla and light candied sugar. TASTE: peppercorns, hop bitterness, slight citrus, caramel, coffee, chocolate, smoke, roasted coffee beans and light candied sugar. AFTER TASTE: caramel, coffee, peppercorns and very slight alcohol with an oily finish. Great tasting brew but I prefer Monkish Shaolin Fist over Pepe Nero.
