Silphium (3199) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - AUG 28, 2008
Slightly hazy copper body, thin, clumping buff head. Toasty nose with burnt caramel notes, dusty, citrusy, and somewhat tart. Hoppy body with spicy, floral hops giving the beer a potpourri character, backed by toasty, dryish malts. Bitter, piney finish. Quite herbal and tannic.

Tallahassee Fl. Market Square Liquors - 22 oz bomber. Dark copper-amber pour with a sticky off-white head. Sweet aroma with hints of spruce, mint and cotton candy. Flavor has an odd twang to it which reminds me a bit of homebrew funkiness. Some maple syrup, butterscotch, bitter chocolate but the funkiness permeates in the back end and dampens my enthusiasm for this one. Mouthfeel is thick - but in a cloying, clumpy kind of way. Expected much more.

Deep ruby red with a small tan head. Deep piney aroma with caramel malt. Flavor is a big hit of earthy, piney hops followed up with malty brown sugar sweetness. A great piney, malty finish with a smooth, full body.

Juelze (1146) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 16, 2008
Thanks to my bro for sharing this with me! Pours a light ruby color with medium off-white head that quickly fades leaving spots of lacing around the glass. Aroma is slight barnyard funk, light notes of dark fruit, caramel and light citrus hops. Taste is sweet malt, light cherry, and some earthy hopiness. Carbonation is mild and taste isn’t bad, but it seems everything was kind of thrown together in this one.

Petrucci914 (910) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 16, 2008
Pours a rich amber color with a medium frothy off-white head that leaves lots of lacing. Aroma is malty, caramel, butterscotch, with some earthy hops. Taste is about the same, with some toffee and earthy palate. Enjoyable and balanced.

Big props to Skyview for bringing this back for us all! Dark copper color with a thin head. Plenty of citrus and caramel aroma. Much more of the same flavor. Slightly astringent bitterness towards the finish. Chewy and nearly bready.
