3.08/5 rDev -14%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Had in bottle at Regional Food and Drink August 21 2011 in Washington DC.
Ill will be the first to admit, Im not typically a darker beer fan, but when you go to place like RFD you want to make it worth your while and this is one of the only Hook and Ladder Beers I have not tried.
Had to tell appearance cause it was in a bottle so I rated it slightly above average, and to be honest appearance means very littel to me anyway when rating a beer.
The smell was not appealing.
The taste it was initally a little harsh, but mellowed out throughout the drink, it did not have a very strong initial aftertaste, but it was a beer a tasted on my tounge the rest of the night, on my Metro and car ride back home.
Overall this is an above average beer, that is worth a try. Again Im not much on beers like this but it was still good, and it supports firefighters which since I am one is always awesome.
