poured aggressively yields a one finger head that dissipates quickly and leaves no lacing.

smells mostly like a new plastic toy, seriously. dare campaigns should give this to eighth grade kids to show them the dangers of drinking.

flavor follows the nose. sucks. plastic/chemicals. as if it was brewed with hot wheels.

mouthfeel- who cares, it'd be decent if you were unaware that you had a mouthful of something that wont biodegrade.

In a word, yuck!How about beer that tastes like beer, instead of potpourri? It looks fine in the glass, but the smell is suspect, and the taste is pure "UGH!" This was offered by a friend, but yowza, no thanks! I like my coffee to taste like coffee, and I like my beer to taste like malt and hops, not a candle shop.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a tulip glass.

Appearance: It has a hazy brownish mahogany color with a tall slow fading head on top. This head is creamy light tan in color makes cool lacing on the glass.

Smell: The aroma is an odd mix of overly sweet malt, spices, hops and orange peel.

Taste / Palate: Just the the aroma the taste is an odd mix up of flavors. I get a heavy sweetness from the malt with notes of brown sugar, sweet bread and molasses. This is cut with harsh orange rind/pith like bitterness and spice. The mouth feel is heavy, slick and cloying.

Notes: To me nothing is working well with each other and I ended up drain pouring the last half of this beer.

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.

Pours out a dark amber/brown. Like slightly burnt caramel. Nice nose of very "British" hops. A bit of booze in the smell and toasty caramelly malts. I pick up a lot of fruity esters. I'm not feeling the flavor. The hops are really subdued as compared in the smell. VERY SWEET. Way over-the-top fruity esters. Kind of messy overall. Mouthfeel is thick and sticky with mild carbonation. I'm not feeling this. Too sweet and the yeast character is too much.
