I had this on tap at the Left Hand/Lake Placid Dueling Beer Dinner at Cambridge Common Restaurant (6/16/10). Great event!
Appearance: Dark amber in color with little to no head
Aroma: Smells fruity, sweet, thick, with slight alcohol notes
Taste: Sweet, a little fruity - maybe I'm tasting plum or apricot? - yeasty and malty. It is very balanced, very toasted. Yum.
Mouthfeel: Creamy and full bodied
Notes: Very easy to drink for almost 9% ABV
Serving type: on-tap

A - Pours a very clear golden amber with a one finger tan head. Head dissipates quickly but the lacing is slightly sticky.
S - Not very impressive in the aroma department. Slightly grassy hops and some bready malt, otherwise a somewhat sour aspect to the aroma. Some fruit is also present, mainly apple or grapes.
T - Quite a contrast from the nose. Initially very boozy and hoppy, followed by a lingering "sour" taste. Slightly sweet aftertaste, with a dry and somewhat boozy finish. Not all that complex, but well balanced.
M - Thin yet smooth, with a good amount of carbonation.
D - It's well balanced, smooth, and refreshing. However it seems a little boozy to have more than a few of!
Overall, this is a good springtime beer. I still think Dead Guy Ale is my favorite of the style I have tried, admittedly not having tried many. This seems to be a less popular style and is somewhat "funky," but interesting nonetheless.
Serving type: growler
