A thanks to the duke of drunkenness, and chief of the canquest, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of malts, pine. Taste is resin, pine, malts, alcohol is making it's presence felt, fairly bitter. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a pretty good beer.

Bottled 12/04/15

Appearance: Right off the bat I notice a ton of carbonation. Be careful when pouring this thing. The head is massive and has a creamy texture with an eggshell white color. The body is very murky. I can't see anything through it. The body of the beer is a deep orange brown color.

Aroma: It has a big malty nose with a fairly strong pine resin aroma. It smells a lot like a Barleywine.

Taste: The flavor mimics the aroma. It has a lot of malt flavor that is mixed with this strong pine flavor.

Mouthfeel: It is a very smooth and thick beer. It has a fairly heavy and dextrinous mouthfeel. The finish is extremely slick.

Overall: It drinks like an under-attenuated Barleywine but it has a very characteristic "East Coast" flavor. The flavors are good but the texture of the beer is way off. It is just too thick and syrupy. It is still drinkable and I can sit here and finish the beer but it just isn't a solid enough beer as a whole for me to want to drink it again. I don't really recommend it either.

Super unfiltered,lots of haze here bordering on hefeweizen territory. Aroma was grassy, simcoe sharpness on top of that, almost a darker chocolate malt vibe in the smallest degree.

Tasted drops more of the grassiness. Plenty bitter but not boozy, covered the alcohol, a little woodsiness to it. A good beer, doesn't do anything bad or excellent.
