3.5/5  rDev -8.6%

Pours a dark murky brown hue with a creamy two finger head and clingy lacing everywhere, the smell is freshly cut grass, piney resinous hops and some candy malts, the mouthfeel is full bodied with above moderate carbonation and the tastes are a big clash of hops and malts with piney resinous hops, candy dark malts,bitter grapefruit and finished with a herbal hop earthiness and overall its alright but probably wouldnt buy it again cheers.

500ml bottle. A blend of traditional English and new-World American sensibilities for the style. 'Farligwine' translates as 'Dangerous Wine', which I suppose somewhat explains the typically creepy label imagery.

This beer pours a murky, rather dark red brick amber colour, with a fistful of puffy, finely foamy, and kind of creamy beige head, which leaves some decent Swiss cheese lace around the glass as it slowly ebbs away.

It smells of bitter orange, grapefruit, and lime citrus rind, crackery caramel malt, dry butterscotch toffee, toasted pale malts, dense black fruit - plum, cherries, and black currants - reduced brown sugar, resinous pine extract, sort of minty tea leaves, and a mild sense of watery mocha. The taste is more fairly bitter blood orange citrus and muddled tropical fruit hop notes, bready caramel malt, dewy forest floor pine needles, dark chocolate, stale coffee, a weirdly isolated mustiness, and a hint of burgeoning alcohol.

The bubbles are present, but pretty innocuous in their bearing, the body a stocky medium-heavy weight, almost a strain on the palate, this one is, and mostly smooth, but for the hovering bitter citrus rind and pine hops. It finishes off-dry, barely, the hops and sneaky-ass alcohol sort of pushing the faltering malt towards a hidden precipice.

While not overly complex, this has the hops to duly qualify it as an American example of its kind. Beyond that, the malt sort of never really finds its footing, ceding a lot to a strong mustiness that resonates more with English versions, what with their relative oldness. Anyways, this is a blend of influences, and it obviously shows. The biggest unmentioned thing thus far is the well-obscured ABV - barely a wisp of boozy astringency, and I'm well through the half-litre already. Oh my, dangerous, indeed!
