Whoa ... this is one epic misfire.

Pours an almost grape-y purplish red with a large off-white head. The smell gives warning that something is terribly, horribly amiss. There are some vague spicy notes, a bit of unidentifiable sweet fruit-i-ness, and an overpowering miasma of cleaning solvent/nail polish remover. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?

It was all I could do to get through four or five oz. I like flavor bombs. I seek them out. I crave them. This beer has too much flavor. Needs to have the spices and nail polish dialed down by a factor of 90%. The sad part is the vinegar/tannin/leather notes are almost pleasant, and the fruit-y/sugar-y/lemon-y spiciness might have been good ... if not for that horrible god awful paint removal flavor that throttles everything it touches.

A truly epically awful beer.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

dark caramel brown. fabulous head. retention is nice. lacing is nice.

smells like fruit. currants, black raspberries, lemon. it's like a dark fruit stew in here.

sweet comes forth immediately on the nose. tart. quite floral in taste. there's something odd on the finish. lemon peel. bitter leaves. not exactly a hoppy bitterness. also reminds me of those fruit jerky stuff.

mouthfeel is fabulous. velvety. just like big sound. only the tartness is more lifting and makes things lighter. way boozy at first but at warmer temperatures everything else kinda masks the booze

again, not my favorite but quite a good brew. everything is just way too much. i was hoping for something lighter. it reminds me of brute, just with a bunch of other things added to it
