An American Malt Liquor. I can't find any formal description of it online, but the chalk board at the brewery said it was brewed with Frosted Flakes. So, yeah, that's something I needed to try.

Pours dark and fizzy. Lively aroma of grass and potpourri--an inviting smell, surprisingly true to the style while managing to avoid the offnesses that cause most people to steer so far away from malt liquors. Kudos.

Annnnd, unfortunately, the flavor doesn't hold together quite as well as the aroma. Tastes super sweet and the body is almost as thick as honey. The front is super sweet adjunct, the back is also very sweet. The thickness persists and the whole thing is just kind of goopy, although it does begin to grow on you about halfway through the pint, with nodes of flowers and chemicals making the whole thing resemble an old timey tincture.
