"Heres Lookin Atcha!"

Laying there, staring up at the ceiling, head pounding, last night was a dim recollection. How did he get home? Was he alone? Looking to the left and right, the answer was yes, maybe. His head was full of rag water, bitters, and the blue ruin.His teeth felt like hed been chewing aluminum and his breath smelled like a burning tractor tire. There was a wrenching knot somewhere between his liver and East St. Louis and he couldnt be sure whether or not hed wet himself. A yellow sine wave rang in his ears so loud nit made his teeth itch and he was sure that if he touched his skin anywhere it would induce a rhythmic retching jag. Even in the face of all that, he found himself smiling at the realization that today represented the fresh breast of a new year- an undiscovered country- and also there was still one warm, half-full, flat redolent Hairy Eyeball on the nightstand. Yes-there is a God.

matty (395) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 28, 2016
22 oz. bottle. Pours a deep ruby red color with an off-white head that settles away fairly quickly. Aroma is mostly thick sweet malt. Medium-full body, taste repeats the aroma - sweet. Thick mouthfeel. Warming alcohol after the swallow. Pretty good!

mintzmeet (457) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 19, 2016
WOW, love this. But not in a way Id drink er any time soon. Leaves a great slime like should be around a hairy eyeball. Strangely just tasted a little mint. Not any particular smell except wet? Maybe my nose just plugged. Tastes kinda like a malty gruel.

Bomber from Bradleys. Deep, rusty ruby with little head. Sweet toffee with roasty malts and dark fruits. Sweet malty flavour with a ton of booze. Better as it warmed.

Homer321 (4560) - Melboring, Florida, USA - FEB 3, 2016
Draft at source. A huge malty nose with raisin and plum overtones. Lots of dried cherry as well. A deep red to brown pour with small white head. Taste is immediately high boost with deep dried fruits and more alcohol warming. Decent but needs to tame down the boost.

dutch23mp (317) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - JAN 29, 2016
Very heavy sent as well as taste. Not a light beer by any stretch caramel coffee hints can tell that the abc is up there. Definitely to be served in a sniffer and would recommend for an after dinner or desert brew
