A new style for me, so I am not sure how it "should" taste. However, I liked it. A very complex brews. Pours a clear, deep brown looking black in the glass. Thick and enormous coffee head settled to a quarter-inch rocky cover. Heavy lacing. Nose is sharply herbal with sage, mint tea, rose, chamomile. Taste is initially lightly sweet, then delicately sour with umami notes. The finish is bitter and floral. Avg carbonation. Texture is slick. Finish is bitter and long. Overall, it was a fascinating beer. Complex and interesting. Dark and wild with an interesting spiciness and rough finish. Not at all forgettable, bur for the right reasons.

Ok, every once in a while you come across a beer that does not sit well with you. I am not saying that this beer is bad, but it just wasnt for me.

The pour was ok, semi- dark, but thats it. I couldn't pick up any aromas, hops or anything.
The taste was overwhelming. To me, I was hit with so many different spices and flavors that I couldn't enjoy any of them.

The aftertaste left something bitter for me. Almost to the point, I felt the after taste was skunked.

We cant like every beer we taste!

Bottled 7/31/12. Poured into a standard pint glass.

Appearance: Near black with a tan one finger head. Excellent retention and lacing everywhere.

Aroma: Huge peppery spice, medicinal. Juniper. Roasted malt.

Taste: Shew, where to begin? This beer is a mess of flavors and it's not good. overly spiced, peppery, juniper, coriander, orange peel, ginger? It's too medicinal and leaves a bad flavor in the mouth. Phenolic, slight bitterness (in a bad way) Just an overall mess.

Mouthfeel:Medium bodied with a slightly prickly carbonation. The flavors are too overwhelming to to appreciate any good mouthfeel qualities this beer could offer. Kinda like someone sprayed perfume in my mouth.

Overall: Glad I only bought one of these. Terrible.
