I picked up a 22oz bottle of this having never heard of it. The chick on the label is kind of hot, btw. I poured this into my Chimay goblet. Pours a nice dark brown color. It was an easy pour, so there wasn't too much of a head. There was plenty of foam though that stayed atop the beer. Nice lacing left behind after the first sip. Sweet malty caramel aroma with a noticable alcohol presence. Smells a bit smokey and get a sense of some vanilla in there. The first sip was kind of harsh on a clean palate. A real malty sweetness to it with plenty of hops. Again, the alcohol is there. A touch of bitterness, but not too much. Becomes increasingly easy to drink with each sip and quite enjoyable. Medium to full bodied and quite smooth. Very drinkable. I wish I had another bottle to bust into tonight.

Live review

Dark reddish amber pour, thick finger of tan head, crazy wallpaper lace. Fades to an island and ring pretty quick with the lace dripping oily legs. Nice.

Lemony citrus and caramel, hints of herbal bitter in a light/medium strength aroma.

Simple taste just like the nose, but with some spicy alcohol in there too. Light strength taste, simple and balanced. A little different bitter in the end of sip than I am used to tasting. Kinda nice, but not great.

Worst feature of this beer. Low carb., low viscosity, ho hum finish, and not the cleanest linger either.

Thought this would be a better beer than it is, still not horrible, and one that is sure to taste good with some morels and bacon grilled cheese.
