16oz can with no date. Took a chance as I am out of town and want to try beers not available to me in Ohio.

Brown/red color with little to no head. Smells of...nothing! Well as it warms I am getting Granny Smith caramel apple. I am worried. Taste is NOT good. Sweet malt and old rotten apple. Mouthfeel is I don't even care. The taste is repulsive. Jesus this is close to a drain pour. Yep-down the drain it goes. Avoid this at all costs!!! Nasty.

Poured from 22 oz. bottle into tulip. Appears to be hand bottled. Has the classic "homebrew cap"

A: Pours a deep copper with a smallish 1 finger white head that sticks around.

S: Lots of malt in the smell. Slight bitterness from the hops.

T: More malts in the taste. Cardboard. Skunky hops at the end.

M: Watery and thin. Lacks carbonation.

O: I'm disappointed with this beer. I had the CEO stout from Right Brain and thought it was pretty good. This beer just lacks in every area. I'll probably try their others in the line up. Maybe I got a bad bottle. But I cant see myself buying this one again.

Pours a light fizzy head that fades almost instantly, clear tan maroon auburn brown color, looks like soda.

Nose generic sweet reddish malt, faint toffee nutty note, little syrupy, that's about it.

Taste brings more of the same, generic reddish malt, toasty masts with mild syrupy toffee candi and faint nutty. But at least decent hops, quite bitter that ramps quickly, earthy and spicy hops, chewy like esp on the finish, long lingering spicy chewy hop finish, sticky mild syrupy lingering.

Mouth is med bod, little syrupy, decent carb.
