Batch 70...wow did I hold on to this one for a bit...but well worth i; Sweet Black Cherry flavor Dark and sweet to look at..not too cloying of a lace Inviting aroma...saying...come check me out Palate...smooth..and nice...seems to be near the point of oxidation (bad celleraing???) Overall...wish I had more...everyone who share it at Beachwood 1...loved it..including me

Dark chocolate brown color with a creamy head. Light carbonation, but a huge chocolate aroma...quite nice. Very sweet and deep flavor that coats your mouth and remains long after your sip. Big, big flavor, but still quite smooth. This is a great beer in this variety.

A: Carbonation explodes out of the beer unlike any Hair of the Dog beer I've seen. The beer is very dark in color and the head is light brown. Huge bubbles form and explode as the head slowly recedes, leaving large clumps of lacing as it does. I was excited to see the carbonation, but this is actually a bit too much. It took forever to pour out 12oz. 3.5

S: The aroma is very earthy, but I do note pilsner-like characteristics that I assume come from the malt. Slight hoppiness adds a nice layer, and the booze rounds it all out. Very fruity and boozy. 4

T: The earthy booziness really assaults the tastebuds. Grassy hops at the finish add to the earthiness. The pilsner taste is there as well at the beginning, which is overtaken by booze, dark fruits, and some roasted malt. The hops finish it off, along with any remaining alcohol. I'm left with a really grassy, citrusy taste that sticks around forever. 4

MF: Thick body that is a bit over carbonated, but not so much that it detracts from the taste. Once you get through the billowing head it's all good. The booze is a bit too much and hurts the drinkability, but overall I enjoy the mouthfeel. 3.5

O: This was a good beer in a style I typically steer clear of. I really don't understand why it's so highly ranked, but I also don't appreciate the style. 3.5
