was impressed by the thick look to it. Rich head of white across the top faded quickly leaving behind only token lace in its wake. The aroma was sweet, lots of caramel and a touch of piney hops make it just bitter enough to get by. Really nice profile here as I take the first sips. Rich malts, smooth, easy caramel flavor with a light and subtle bitterness that reminded me of a nice barleywine. Medium feel here as the syrup like nature of it lended itself to a bit thicker of a profile. thought the alcohol was very well hidden indeed,

One of four experimental beers served at Dirty Jacks, Asheville, NC on 11/27/09.

A - Medium to dark brown body with ruby hues, giving it a reddish tint. The slim off-white head diminished into a thin ring around the rim of the glass.

S - The nose proudly displays an aromatic rosemary character, giving this beer an intensely herbal flair with a hint of light floral notes. Very authentic aroma... think of opening the cupboard to access your spice rack, then getting a whiff of fresh rosemary.

T - Again, the flavor is pretty one-dimensional, but that seems to be the point with these experimental beers. The rosemary flavor is so authentic, giving the brew a fresh herbal character. While not bitter at all, Rosemary's Baby does have a spicy kick.

M - Medium bodied with a thick, oily texture and mild carbonation. Finishes spicy on the palate.

D - Another innovative beer with an authentic aroma and flavor. This one definitely pushes the envelope. If you dig spices and fresh herbs, then you should hope they brew this again!

One of the 4 Experimental Winter Warmers offer at Dirty Jacks on Black Friday. A strong ale made with fresh, local rosemary,

A-Deep, dark copper with a thin off-white head that left spotty lace.

S-A blast of spicy rosemary and an underlying sweet malt base.

T-Fresh, spicy rosemary up front with an underlying deep malt sweetness.

M-Medium bodied with LONG lasting sharp spiciness.

D-Rather one dimensional but this is said to be a rosemary brew and that is what it is. Straight forward and to the point. Spicy herb and malt sweetness meld well.
