FROTHINGSLOSH (8176) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 9, 2016
Sampled on draft at the Pratt St Ale House this beer poured a very dark brown color with a medium sized foamy beige head that left good lacing. The aroma was sweetish with notes of molasses, heather and honey. The flavor was tobacco, wood, heathe, plum and molasses. Lots going on but the elements were hard to pick out. Medium length finish. Moderately full bodied and creamy. Interesting.

solidfunk (9444) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - DEC 15, 2015
The tree tips put an odd astringent infusion in here that I’m not sure works. Light honey. Pours dark mahogany with great nitro pillow of head. Some caramel and oak doesn’t help the astringency with the wooden notes. Creamy consistency. Astringent and lightly sweet finish. Nitro at Glens.
