Pours a murky deep amber or pale brown producing 2 fingers of tan, frothy, somewhat lasting head that leaves a wash of splotchy lacing. Aroma is an earthy maltiness of caramel, cocoa, musty rye spice & dried figs with floral, pine & a faint hint of citrus hops. Taste is variously bitter, dry & astringent across the tongue, front to back, with a toasted brown bread, malty rye spice, dried fig & raisin start that soon mixes with earth, grapefruit, pine resin & pepper balancing by mid-sip where a shortlived malty sweetness develops only to be swallowed up by a clean, grapefruit & pepper finish that soon becomes an increasingly bitter & drawing pine aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium-heavy bodied with low-moderate carbonation, clean, somewhat smooth for the style & dry with astringency on the back & center of the tongue. The bitterness lingers long in the dry aftertaste. There is something about the flavor that puts me in mind of Uerige Dopplesticke.

Draught @ Recovery in Troy: This one pours a murky brown, and was somewhat milky. There was a small white head that left some lacing. It has a lighter aroma. Some rye, grapefruit and pine. The taste is fair: some of the hops come thry (grapefruit and pint) as well as some rye. I probably won’t have this one again.

On tap at L&M Lanes in Rochester, NY.

Pours a russet caramel brown, fairly hazy, with a half inch head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells like rye and caramel, with a small amount of pine.

The taste is similar. It just seems slightly muted, with some annoyingly sweet caramel malt flavors. It just seems faded. I suspect it's a combination of the beer being old and the beer being not particularly bright to begin with. The rye is there, but I wish it was a bit stronger.

There's a medium amount of carbonation supporting a medium strength body. Not all that drinkable because it doesn't taste that good.

Magic Hat continues to unimpress.
