On tap at The Salted Pig in Riverside, CA.

Pours a murky reddish-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, dark fruit, brown sugar, and slight spice aromas. Taste is much the same with a fruity flavor on the finish. There is an alcohol kick on the palate after each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

Bottle: Poured a clear dark brown color ale with a medium size foamy head with light retention and no lacing. Aroma of dry fruits with some caramelized malt notes and loads of residual sugars. Taste is also dominated by dark fruit with some plums notes with light unrefined caramelized malt with load of residual sugar. Body is not as full as I would have expected with medium-to-low carbonation and some warming alcohol noticeable. Too unbalanced for my taste with too much residuals sugars and almost no attenuation.

When I heard about this beer being released I was stoked that Ralph Steadmen was finally getting his own beer from Flying Dog. After designing countless labels for the brewery I was really glad to see this beer being released in his honor.

I managed to find some of these at my local shop recently and I nearly shit when I say the price tag on it. I knew this would be a once and done kind of beer. It poured out as a nice brown color with a thin cream colored head on too. The retention and lacing were moderate. The smell was earthy and a little spicy, there was a subtle bready sweetness in there too. The taste of the beer didn't have as much depth as I was hoping for. It was malty, with some earthy spice in the finish. The taste is a little one dimensional. The mouthfeel was a little on the bland side too, it could have had more body and a bit more carbonation. Overall it's still a decent beer, if you can find it cheap enough I'd say try it but with a $21 tag on it I can't justify that.

look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

S: Fruity esters, rich figs, brown sugar, dates, raisin bread, slight phenolics

L: Brown, slightly opaque, carbonated light tan head that dissipates to a bubbly surface.

T: Fruity, dark fruit malt with slight bready sweetness. Earthy, slightly herbal medium bitterness with some deep alcohol warmth. Finishes fairly dry with some slight residual dark fruit.

M: Medium bodied, medium high carbonation, alcohol warming.

Not impressed, very boozy and not very complex. Too bad, i love Ralph Steadman.

A- Dark chestnut colored body with a frothy off-white head that leaves good lacing.

S- Cherries, honey, hazelnut, Belgian yeast, some spice.

T- Some sweetness up front with cherries and honey coming through. There is also a caramel malt flavor towards the middle with some nuttiness. The finish tastes very yeasty with some sugary dryness.

M- Medium-high carbonation, full-bodied and somewhat creamy.

O-A good Belgian style dark ale. Definitely drinkable and flavorful.

This beer reminds me more of a flanders oud bruin. Hazed brown color with a fluffy quick dyeing tan head. Smells vinous with a bit of vinegar and some fruity belgian undertones.

Full body with low amounts of carbonation. A little thin on the finish.Sweet sherry and port like notes up front, faintly woody, with a definitive vinegar taste throughout. Finishes acidic with faint belgian yeast notes and a bit of alcohol heat. Long finish but overall the beer has good balance. Very acidic and again, very flander oud bruin with belgian dark ale notes beneath it all. As an oud bruin this beer is awesome. As a belgian dark ale not so much. But I really feel this beer should be re-categorized.

Poured chilled in ale glass

A: dark brownish red; one-finger head; good carb stream
S: Spritelike; metal aroma; not very appealing
T: Lambic quality; malty, not hoppy; something close to a Euro strong, with the booziness to match

Despite the lackluster flavor, this proved a really fantastic experience, mainly because of the distinctive character
