look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Poured from a one-pint-some-odd-ounce bottle into my Terrapin snifter.
Appearance: Golden brownish with a two-finger creamy head. No transparency; totally cloudy. One of the finest-looking beers I've ever set eyes to.
Smell: The first word that comes to mind is 'musty'. It's got a funky smell, with alcohol present. It's a little vegetable-y.
Taste: Wow, here come the vegetables! It seems to odd to describe a beer like that, but that's seriously the impression I get. The alcohol I caught in the smell is also evident in the taste. You know what, the more I drink it, the more I like it. There are some roasted-tasting malts underneath the funk; on the whole, it reminds me a bit of Celebrator Doppelbock by Ayinger... but funkier.
Mouthfeel: Creamy and smooth, but almost kind of flat. It could use both a little more carbonation and a little more body. Definitely not bad, though.
Drinkability: High drinkability, both in spite of and because of the funkiness. (There's that word again, I know.) Still, more than a pint is a lot to drink, especially for something with 10% abv.
Serving type: bottle
