A: Well, we can definitely say packaging was everything here. Sweet blue tinted bottle with black wrapped cork. Small but after drinking it, I understand why. Poured like a motor oil into my oil pan. No head no matter how much I tried. When held up to the light, hints of cherry coloring highlighted the absence of light.
S: Tart grapes and annice (black licorice), plums and apples (although I think they all smell like apples).
T: WOAH!!! CAUTION... Small sips only! If they were looking for shocking, they got it! Picture the tartest wine you have ever had and double it! At first it gives a sweetness of a tart grape juice, then the alcohol hits as you swallow and your face tighens up like swallowing a lemon whole!
M: Syrup. Maybe Nyquil mixed with grape juice in a 10:1 ratio. Ever have Noni juice?
D: Once a year. I have one more bottle, due to the packaging. I will wait a year to crack it open. I might even try and share it next time.

Shared this with BPK59 at his birthday party. A fun tick. This was 1995 vintage. Of course Ben broke the cork off and in to the bottle...hah!
A - Poured in to a small snifter a motor oil thick dark dark brown nearly black hue with some really incredible legs.
S - Aromas of sweeter malts, salty brine, soy sauce.
T - Taste is even worse than the nose. Loads of sticky sweet malts, salty sweet soy sauce. Ugh
M - Mouthfeel is heavy and syrupy
O - Overall this was a soy bomb. I guess this beer truly is russian roulette, as some bottles are incredible and others are just plain drain pour. Still, glad I got to try it!
