A treat to pick up this grolwer at the new Brew House earlier this spring. Reviewed 2 days after picking up.
Pours a clear chocolate brown with red hue. Thin chocolaty head with large bubbles that cling to side of glass, some open lacing.
Smells of dark chocolate malts, slight funk, some rotten banana peel with hibiscus flower.
Kind of funky past magnolia flower bitter palate. Medium to light body with only enough carbonation to carry the flavors to it's fading bitter finish. Ends with a light flowery funk and off sour. Great spring into summer beer. Malts give way to a flowery barn yard mouth feel. Slight alcohol flavor comes through.
Goes well with garlic olives for no particular reason.
Serving type: growler

Bottle obtained from the brewery about a year and a half ago.
Dark brown pour, with a large off-white head that retained nicely and coated the glass with lace. Mild aroma of bready yeast and caramel malts. Taste was very bland up front, cardboardy malts, yeast, light herbal hop notes, no real sweetness or estery qualities that I like in the style; it was really just pretty lacking in taste, though benign and mostly non-offensive. Could've just been that the bottle was past its prime, but I don't see why a beer like this couldn't hold up a year or two in the cellar. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Pretty average overall, not very tasty, but not undrinkable.
