Served in a snifter at Bigby's Pour House.
Quick poll: Ulysses or Odysseus? Anyway, this stuff pours a lightly-hazy sienna topped by a finger of glowing off-cream foam. The nose comprises earthy berries, light maple syrup, and dry biscuit. The taste brings in more of the same, though now the berries are less tart, everything is generally sweeter, and some strong notes of oak make themselves more than known. The body is a lithe medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, an alright beer, but one that just seems too scattershot, too schizoid, to be truly effective to my tongue. Frankly, I'm glad I've held off on buying bottles of this in the $15 or so range...
Serving type: on-tap

750ml bottle into a snifter
A: Pours a dark amber/brown with two fingers of fluffy head. Very good retention and lacing.
S: Caramel, cocoa powder, and sweet vanilla oak. A hint of dark fruits.
T: Caramel, a bit of prunes, and light vanilla. The flavors go well together, but this is not an overly complex BSDA.
M: Medium thickness with fairly strong carbonation.
O: The flavors go nicely together in this beer, but it's not very complex for the style. It's somewhere between a brown ale and a BSDA.
