phaleslu (10731) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 5, 2016
Bottle opened in the Hyatt on the last night of fart sharing of 2016. Thanks to whichever one of the Brits left this behind! Pours a cloudy dark orange with a finger of off-white head that settles into a lasting film and trailing lace. Notes of rye, tea, grass, sweet bread and caramel, and wheat. Medium-bodied, with an earthy, malty, mildly spice mouthfeel. Not the thing I’d normally go for, but I really liked this one. Homer321 (5202) - Melboring, Florida, USA - FEB 6, 2016

Bottle. Dark brown with a nutty slightly spicy flavour with some maltiness in the background. Quite a few flavours floating to produce a warming but not overpowering beer. jackl (8447) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 10, 2015
Bottle @ Craft Clerko. Thanks to whoever supplied this! Amber pour with a prominent head. Nose has some surprising accents of celery, and green vegetables. Spicy steam vegetable mix. Taste is similar. More celery. General spiced grains. Some hop bitterness. Strange but not completely unappealing. Medium body, soft carb.
