I was really apprehensive about trying this beer given all of the bad reviews on BA. I picked it up on the recommendation of a friend that works at our local Total Wine & More. It pours really nicely with a big creamy dense head and settles on down with lovely lacing and a coffee creamer cap. The smell is pure funk, and the most frightening thing about this beer. It reeks like sour ass. Sweat from a donkey is just how i'd describe the reek.
Surprisingly, it's a fine tasting beer. It's very bready and malty with a nutty twang and some roasted popcorn. I'm getting a little raw nutmeg on the beer, too. Not sour at all. Hops on this beer are very light and it finishes wet on the tongue. It's actually quite refreshing and not overly alcoholic. Would make a fun choice for a spring beer on a warm day.
Seriously, if you can get past the smell, it's a pretty good beer.
