A total foam bomb! Not unlike my first home-brewing attempt. Not sure why something like this would be sold (at the brewpub). No quality control that day I guess. Had a couple others from Greenbush that were over-carbonated but this was a disaster. What I could taste was not too impressive.

Served in a snifter at Beer Market - Schaumburg.

The musical set here is surprisingly good... ...Anyway, this stuff pours a very dark, slightly murky midnight sienna topped by a half-finger of off-khaki foam. The nose comprises dates, light maple syrup, dark fruits, brown sugar, and a touch of rye bread. The taste brings in more of the same, that heapin' helpin' of dates really coming through and choking out all competitors. The body is a solid medium, bordering on hefty, with a light moderate carbonation and a generally smooth feel. Overall, a surprisingly solid beer, but one whose enjoyment is predicated on your taste for dates.
