Prefaced with this, I’ve had this before and really enjoyed it, but this years was off.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a HF wine glass. Copper and orange in color with a thin off white head.

Smells of…onion? Or garlic? Very pungent and slightly vegal, but seriously, there is a garlic and onion smell to this.

Taste is a fresh hop bitterness, followed by the sweetness of the malts, but then this pungent onion/garlic flavor just sits down in your palate and doesn’t want to leave. Not digging this flavor at all. Not much of a change as it warms.

Mouthfeel is nice, slightly thick and a tick oily.

Overall, a believe my good friend summed this beer up best. I don’t want to be drinking the burps from a hearty Italian hoagie.
