Poured from a bottle into a pint.

Lucky, this bottle was provided to me by a friend and I didn't pay for it. He laughed and told me it tasted like Band-aids, I found this crazy so I had to try Band-aid beer. He's not far off. Yuck. Here goes....

The color isn't that bad, but there's very minimal head and what's there resides very quickly. There's a decent lacing around the glass, but actually the word "decent" should have been "minute." The smell is very very strange. The nose is this offensive rubbery, dark fruit scent, like it's raisins, plums and too much toffee. My thoughts going into this was that hopefully the taste didn't follow the nose, it didn't, it was actually worse. He was freaking right, it tastes like band-aids. Yuck. There's way, way too much toffee and way, way too much raisins and plum flavor. Yuck. God I just drank it again to get a more accurate description, just don't drink it. That's the best I can get. Just don't.

If you're thinking of drinking this beer, stop it. Walk away and buy something good. This is not good.
