Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Almost...time...to...rest... Anyway, this stuff pours a clear sunset russet-garnet-ruby topped by a finger or so of wan dirty-khaki foam. The nose comprises Belgian candi sugar, pine sap, light maple syrup, light cardamom, and a touch of candied orange peel. The taste brings in more of the same, along with veins of spruce, rather mild ginger, and a touch of spearmint. The mixture of flavors doesn't come together well at all, clashing occurring at every possible point, my tongue yearning for peace to once again descend upon the land. In vain. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, I found this beer to be too much for its own good, the flavors just not cooperating at all (unless their end goal was one of anarchy, complete and unfettered lawlessness and absurdity). Not gonna have this one again, unless they significantly alter the recipe.

Picked up at my fav bottle shop for a steal- (sixer @ 4.99)
Dated Sept 13, 2013.
Pours a murky reddish brown, with good 3/4 inch off foam that subsides to good cap with lacing.
Smell is wonderful , dark fruits- nuts- crackers- hops.
Taste follows on as rather complex with the fruits first , then the caramel-cracker malts asserting themselves in the middle and a pleasant licorice spiciness along with some hops bitterness nand alcohol warmth on the long finish.
Mouth- good med.-leaning toward heavy feel. Coats the mouth nicely.
Overall a very good red-brown ale . Brewery notes say it can be kept for best results to 1 year. I'm holding on the remaining for Sept.

A - Pours a hazy reddish-brown with a two-finger tan head. Light sticky lacing.

S - Sweet malt, toffe, and a hint of alcohol.

T - Starts sweet with brown sugar, caramel malts, and dark fruits. There is some eathery hops in the finish producing some lingering bitterness.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Chewy mouthfeel with a sticky finish.

O - A nice beer. A little too sweet to have more than one in a sitting. This would make a nice winter sipper.
