clear dark gold pour some white foam. Aroma funky oak, dust granny smiths markers. Light carb. Buttery lacto. Chestnut aftertaste, obscured by oak and sour, concrete dust. some burnt plastic on the end. bitter type finish. A complex, balanced beer that lets one too many flavors in the door. jhamp9 (1836) - Corinth, Texas, USA - MAR 9, 2015

Bottle. Thanks to mcbackus for sending me this! Gusher! Pours a cloudy orange/amber body with huge head. Aroma is of spices, nutmeg, cloves, yeast, and caramel. Flavor is sweet, spices lay down smoothly on the tongue. Well carbonated, made a small look in comparison to Choufee. Smooth and enjoyable. Finishes in a dry sweet flavor.

(Batch 244,245) The aroma starts with the standard tart funk of almost all of Jolly Pumpkin’s beers. Underneath that, there are hints of nuts, and a touch of chocolate. Pours a clear amber, with a huge rocky white head. The taste is a peppery, nutty ale, crisp on the palate with a slight bit of tartness to it. Very tasty, and works quite well even in summer.

Batch 901, Bottled October 19, 2011.
Appearance: The body is a hazy light amber with a tall white head that dissipates rather quickly to a dense white coating with a tall ring.
Aroma: Slight Autumn spices of cinnamon and clove with a light fruity tartness I can’t put my finger on, cherries? Hints of red wine vinegar too. This smells great.
Taste: Mildly tart with a small hint of vinegar, but it quickly picks up on a dry nutty and cinnamon/nutmeg finish that abruptly stops. Sort of a potpourri finish.
Palate: Light bodied with high carbonation.
Overall: I wonder if this has gotten more tart with age or lost it, I also wonder if the body was more beefy fresh. This drinks nicely now, though I wish I’d saved it for a nice Autumn night.
