Poured into a Sam Adams glass.

Pours cola-colored with a solid, light brown head.

Aroma is a potent combo of leather, rum, and earth. One of the more complex aromas I've experienced, helped by the fact that it practically burns your eyes with its potency.

Wonderfully complex flavor here, but not for the faint of heart, and only for a certain palate. Mimics chew tobacco- pure tobacco leaf flavor, but sweetened and earthy. There's a bit of detectable booze as well, but with such a robust flavor, it fits right in. The earthy, compost-like flavors here are very interesting.

This brew leaves a nice aftertaste, but is just a bit sticky for my liking. Leaves a sugary film on your gums that's a bit too Mountain Dew for my liking.

High scores overall for this one, especially considering the fact that it's canned. This may be a go-to brew from now on for cold weather camping/hiking trips. I'm bummed it took me this long to give it a try.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

I wanted to like this beer, but my initial reactions were not positive at all. I gave it a 2.50 rating within the first two minutes. Obviously I deleted that rating. I'm somewhat new to the craft beer scene, and I found the taste syrupy and bitter and kinda gross. But as I approached the bottom, I started to warm up to it and the beer seemed to settled down. I don't think it was simply the alcohol taking effect and me growing acclimated to the new taste, though I'm sure that played a part. But the beer seem to change consistency midway through. I found it quite good at the end. I definitely want to try again
