Received this as an extra in a trade. Poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a light almost crystal clear light reddish brown hue with a big two finger creamy head that fades to leave thin lacing and a very, very nice half finger blanket.

S - Aroma is very malt heavy, light biscuit notes, faint wet cardboard. No real hops...

T - Similar to the nose, way too malt heavy and sweet here. No real hop flavour, per say, just a generic bitter finish. More of the biscuit bready qualities too.

M - Mouthfeel Is a touch on the thin side, fairly average.

O - Overall, a far too malty beer. Frustrated with Louisiana so far...

Poured from the can into pint glass

Dark copper in color, little head. Sweet Malty aroma. Same witht the taste, but just something a bit off. A weird aftertaste. Okay body and carbonation.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: Pours a hazy copper amber. Maybe a pinky's worth of head and then it went away.

S: A sweet malt smell.

T: Up front bitter taste. The back end is an earthy malt taste.

M: The after taste is an earthy feel.

O: Overall its a decent beer. If I came across this I would try it again.

12oz can with a canned on date of "10/08/2014" Poured into a mason jar glass.

Appearance: Pours a hazy copper with ridiculous over carbonation, probably the age of the can

Smell: Slight hops and a lot of caramel, biscuit, and toffee

Taste: Toffe note with some lingering hop bitterness

Mouthfeel: Way over-carbonated

Overall: The lackluster qualities can be attributed to the age. Not terrible, but doesn't provide much to stand out.

Served in a stemless globe.

Thanks to hannydawg for sharing this can!

Damn puns... This stuff pours a clear sunset amber topped by a finger of cream-light tan foam. The nose comprises flaky biscuit, light caramel, and light cocoa. The taste holds notes of wheat, light chocolate, and caramel. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry-ish, kinda chalky finish. Overall, an okay brew at best, one that really didn't sit fully right with me throughout.

Poured a 12 oz can into a clean goblet and got the following

A. Cloudy brown with 2 fingers on fizzly tan head. Chestnut body color.

S. Smells like crystal malt and a little bit of nutty breadiness.

T. Slightly earthy and choppy with some sweet background crysyalliness.

M. Very good balance of sweetness and gravity and good carbonation.

Overall not bad but their pale ale is much better. Would buy again if in baton rouge again
