COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We brewed this especially bitter ale in dedication to all the worlds would-be astronauts, in remembrance of the 2005 St. Patricks Day Massacre on the Brewery Party Grounds and also in joyous celebration of our 20-day suspension that following January. Do the crime. Do the time. Get the bragging rights. Cheers!

22 oz bottle. Another appropriate beer to celebrate the return from RateBeer’s "Shut Down." Pours a big brown ale color with a rocky head. Smell is mostly malts and alcohol, just a backing of hops. Taste carries through some nice malt sweetness. If they were going for "bitter" instead of IIPA-level hops, they’ve hit that, though there a hint of pine and, for some reason, a note of sour milk. Comes across like an imperial brown ale. I found it tasty and nicely strong. My label is different from the picture; its top banner reads "Sneak Release" and the bold "Whatever. We’re Still Here." is missing. I did buy this in 2007, so it must have sat at Family Liquors just waiting for me!

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 27, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2010 In short: Yet another sweet big American Strong Ale sipper. Nothing special.
How: Bottle 22oz, age unknown but most likely recently purchased, tasting session with Montreal crew
The look: Clear dark-golden body topped by a small off-white head
In long: Nose is floral, sweet with some clementines. Taste is very sweet with caramel, honey and plain sugar, just too sweet for me. The floral hops do a good aromatic job but and not effective enough with the bitterness. Alcohol is not bothersome but is not well hidden either. On of many (too many) generic sweet American Strong ales. Im puzzled by the good rating on this one, this is the most overblown Undercover Investigation since the weapons of mass destruction fiasco.

Excellent stuff. These guys need to get busted more often! I bought a bottle to try and when I went back for more, they were sold out.

Poured from a 22oz bottle a dark amber with a reddish tint and an off-white head. Aroma was caramel malt and floral/piney hops. Flavor was malty with a bitter hop and a bit of toffee in the finish.

GREAT TASTE. Nose was caramel with very floral hops. Flavour had the resin taste with a huge wash of malts adding heavy molasses and butterscotch tones.
