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.

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.

Bottle- 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>
