The Church Street Brimstone is ok...nothing fantastic. The poured a hazy golder with essentially no head and no lace. The scent was malty leaning toward the sweeter side. The taste was also bolstered by sweet malt...with a bitterness at the end which was grapefruit leaning. The mouthfeel was medium in body with so so carbonation. Overall its ok....worth a taste sure.

12oz bottle; no freshness date, bottle says 6.8% ABV, brewer's website says 6.4% ABV
L - hazy amber with a thinner ivory head that fades to a foam atop the ale
S - caramel malt, bread, earth, and some pine, faintly fruity
T - fruity, caramel, bread crust, pungent pine and citrus, earth
F - medium body, resinous, very bitter and dry finish with the pine lingering
O - better than the other Church Street offerings I've had. This was good, but not great. It was better than expected, but I won't be buying it again.
