Beer doesn't live up to the hype for me. The taste isn't very complex and its a bit too light in taste to justify its strength in both color and smell. Tastes very ordinary in my opinion.

Wasn't sure what to think of this beer. Here goes:

A: Just OK. Cloudy, opaque brown with a small brown head. Lots of lacing, though.

S: Funky, but not in a good way. Onions, herbal smell, some burnt malt. Not very good.

T: Bleh, drain-pour. Rancid, oniony hops on a caramel malt backbone. Just bad.

F: OK, not very thick, some carbonation.

O: Keep away from this one.

Clear copper-colored brew in the Ciney snifter with plenty of suds in the mouth, but short-lived head in the glass. Aroma of herbal hops. Rich, rather sweet concoction with a spicy edge and an insistent malted milk taste. The flavor of slightly burnt raisin toast comes to mind.

This stuff just stays sweet from start to finish. It's a pleasant grainy, malty brew with an over-abundance of caramel. Some bitterish hops emerge for the finish. Rather leafy and a little dank for a winter brew. I had a Sierra Nevada Celebration on tap yesterday, which sets a better standard with more aromatic hops and less sugar.

From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Wine World and Spirits in north Seattle.
