650 ml bottle. Pours a dark amber with little head. Aromas of dry grass, light biscuit, and toasted malts. Flavors of bitter resin, toast, malts, and burnt sugar. Not my cup of tea.

Poured from a 22 ounce bomber. Big malty character up front, breads, toffee. Slight hop character. There was a noticeable sourness to the beer. Not to bad.

Fatehunter (2517) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Thin head on a clear, copper colored body. The aroma is grainy and honey, but quite bold for a lager. The taste has a building bitterness that is balanced with a mild sweetness. The finish is a dry bitterness and a little bready. Low carbonation and medium body. A really enjoyable beer and quite drinkable.

poisoneddwarf (2476) - Coeur d Alene, Idaho, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Bomber bought at Super 1 in CDA, ID. Pours slightly hazy copper with a medium collapsing beige head; leaves a ring of ugly big-bubbly foam. Aroma consists of dough, toasted bread, dark fruits, caramel. Taste is lightly sweet before a nice hoppy bitterness sets in and lingers there long after the swallow. Its earthy, grassy, caramelly. Carbonation is medium to high, body is medium. Good.

The nose is all yeast. Plenty of a fruit and a little sulphur. Slick, eggy, hints of copper and caramel. One of the worst Ive had from them.
