Rochestafarian n. 1. A beer, malty in nature, brewed to honor Rochester, NY. Like the citys fine funky music, this sweet, full bodied, slightly bitter brew is sure to sway the soul and bring about a feeling of Irie. 2. One who loves 3HB.

Bombers from Capones and Wegmans. Pours turbid ruby reddish with minimal off-white head. Nose is earthy nut browny, caramel malt. Tastes metallic, earthy, pretty bad actually. Finishes medium in palate heft with some earthy metallic notes. The first miss from these excellent brewers.

Poured into tulip a whisky color with little head that Another customer Thought was a bourbon in less than a minute. Seemed a little weak for a wee heavy. No alcohol note and was malt heavy in the taste and aroma. Was not sweet on the nose though. Had a very slight ting of metal in the finish.

McGarnigle (634) - Rochester, New York, USA - FEB 14, 2016
Bottle. More or less right for the style, but tastes light for a Wee Heavy. Im not getting depth here. It isnt cloyingly sweet, but maybe thats the problem. Not a lot of space for complex malts. Aftertaste isnt ideal either.

Pours cloudy ruby to brown cplor with soft tan head. The aroma is caramel, sweet, toffee. The flavor is caramel, earthy, roasty, some smoke, leaves roasty note at end. When warms, notes of chocolate. Overall nice palate, fairly thick. Reminds me of oscar blues.

After reading some other reviews, I am wondering if I got a bad batch. The beer was impossible to pour at one time, as the head was just too large. It lasted quite a while. Note: I will occasionally pour a bad beer, but I actually tried patiently on a bottle and it still was foaming like crazy. After letting it sit until the head died, it looks like murky pond water. There are caramel and toffee notes but upfront it is way too carbonated. Something vaguely vegetable about it too. This is just not a good beer.

Finhead (1690) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - OCT 12, 2015
Cloudy, brown pour with a frothy off-white head. The aroma has plum and light wood. It has a medium body that is just a touch too fizzy. The taste is mildly roasted with a little smokey warmth in the finish.

kramer (6484) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 11, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear dark ruby body with a small fizzy beige head that faded to a wispy film. The nose is sweet and super malty with a light hint of roast and tobacco. The flavor is a bit flat, a little too sweet without a whole lot of depth to it. Lots of fruitiness, some tobacco, a little alcohol. Medium bodied and a touch clingy with minimal soft carbonation. Meh, like many beers of this style, its just all sweetness, and not a lot of nuance.

355 ml bottle. Pours a dark amber colour with a thin off-white head. Aroma is sweet malts. Taste is same, plus some caramel. Decent beer.

Sweet malty smell, dark amber appearance, also a sweet taste with a little bit of a weird taste that is hard to place...maybe the hops?? no hops that are noticeable though...alcohol taste
