Black can. Perfect wrapper for the beer of the longest night of the year, such a pagan. Pours like iced tea with a head, big foamy head. Stronger malty experience backed with big dull hops that continue to get more bitter in the middle. Didn't even notice the carbonation due to the powerful building bitter sensations. What a big messy near viscous mouth coating experience in the end. As a dad, I'm not impressed. Its just one kick ass hoppy brew. A bold example of a malty beer with rye india pale pressure. YEs, like hops? Put this brew in your bucket list, IPA & rye PA lovers will dig this I bet.

FROTHINGSLOSH (8405) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 15, 2017
Sampled on draft at Tapped this beer poured an orange brown color with a large foamy beige head that lingered and left excellent lacing. The aroma was faint floral hops, a touch of perfume and a hint of malt. The flavor was bitter and a touch harsh with perfumey and floral hops. Medium length finish. Medium body. Meh

Pours a darker amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is caramel malts, slight citrus hops, and some dark fruits. Flavor is pretty much all malts. Not much hop character, and the flavor dies quickly.

On tap at Wexford pub. Amber beer, nice head, no lacing, soapy hops and seems a little thin. Nice clean palate.

hotstuff (5289) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 12, 2017
Rated on 12-09-2017. Date on can is 10/17/17. The appearance is a medium sized foamy, semi-fizzy beige head that is mostly lasting, transparent dark amber body, fast rising carbonation, and spotty lacing. The aroma is hint of hops, hint of spice, sweet, nutty, caramel, and toasted malt. The flavor presents light-medium bitterness, dark fruits, spice, caramel, malt, sweet and a dry finish. The mouthfeel is fizzy carbonation, smooth, clean, and slick. This beer is medium-full bodied. This beer has a bitter finish, quite tasty and refreshing. It is a beer that I would drink again.

Not my favorite. Poured beautifully out of the can with a deep mahogany color and great thick head. After that, discover that although 60 IBU, it has a heavy malt flavor. Love Rhinegeist but not this effort. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jsporrer (1170) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 12, 2017
Pours a clear dark amber (iced tea) color with a foamy light tan head. Faint aroma of light spices. Taste of malts with light spices and a hint of bitterness. Flavors are not very bold or prominent. Not bad just not that remarkable.

MrHangover (4693) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 12, 2017
Can. Pours a clear amber beer with a medium sized, off white head on top. Aroma of light citrussy hops, some caramelized malts and some light red fruits. Flavor is medium bitter, fruity and a bit overcarbonated. Not the most interesting amber out there, but not bad at all. Aftertaste is short and light bitter. Decent amber.

muzzlehatch (4977) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 16, 2017
12 ounce can from Winerak Market in Zanesville, OH, served about cellar temp in a pint glass. Fluffy, lasting off-white foam fills half the glass, lacing a little as it slowly fades atop the dark amber body....somewhat indistinct aroma of burnt caramel, a little smoke, a bit of faint dried herbs...body is yer typical amber ale I suppose, a little drier and more bitter and burnt than many, but featuring an ok balance of caramel & pale malts and light earthy hoppy characteristics...finish is more bitter than I expecte; body is reasonably full, carbonation average to a touch low...this gets more bitter and burnt as it warms, rather like old too-strong coffee. It’s still drinkable I guess, but just. Mmmm...meh.
