Pricey at $5 for a 7 oz. bottle, jeez. Pours amber with very little head. Strange aroma. Oyster sauce, tabasco, spaghettios, malt. Spaghettios for sure (wife confirms this). Flavor is nice, with a scotch and malt backbone on top if some sweet dark candy flavors and, yes, a sweet tomato-ey essence. Somewhat unique, but one of the funkiest smelling beers I have encountered. Medium slick mouthfeel, with some creamy finish. Not bad, but a little weird.

Served from a vintage 2010 7oz bottle into a St. Bernardus snifter.

Appearance- Dark murky brown with zero head.

Smell- Smells barrel aged. Caramel, vanilla, light peat and scotch notes, light booze. Quite nice.

Taste- Light smoke or woody characteristic, plum(?), peaty/scotch flavor, lots of caramel malts, not a hop to be found. i have to mark down on the taste because of the mouthfeel unfortunately.

Mouthfeel- Super thin. Unbelievably so. Light carbonation, very low viscosity.

Overall- Rogue. This beer had a lot of promise, but unfortunately the mouthfeel with way too light. Wouldn't min trying this "fresh".
