Thanks to Chuck. The pour is medium amber with a creamy head. Aroma is sour fruit primarily. Flavor is molasses and hopps. Eh, not a favorite. Fairly mediocre. lukeris (5) - USA - NOV 30, 2007 does not count
a beautiful red/amber color with fast dissipating tan head. First aroma was a strong smell of butterscotch. Followed by hop, malt, and a haunting aroma of minty pine. As it airs, the pinyness becomes more prevalent (is it the power of label suggestion?). I taste the malt first, which initially echoes the smell of butterscotch, going into a pine/hop/roasted malt flavor. A nice smooth texture. The finish is a bit smoky and peaty. Later-I found the finish excessively smoky. I felt as if I had smoked a cigar. kaosse (3) - Point Roberts, Washington, USA - DEC 21, 2004 does not count
Not for the weak of heart.
Forgot one opened bottle and next morning the taste was very dampened (like the Chrismas Tree on Boxing Day morning) --- but the hops were completely uneffected (undrinkable but interesting)<g>
