On tap at BC's Pizza & Beer

A: Pours rich copper with a frothy tan head that settles to a thin layer and leaves a little spotty lacing.

S: Spice, toasty bread, mild fruity notes, and some spruce.

T: Toffee sweetness, bready malt, a bit toasty, nicely spiced with cinnamon, light fruity notes, and a mild piney bitterness.

M: A bit on the fuller side of medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: Nicely balanced. Pretty darn solid winter warmer.

Served on-draught into a half pint glass at Hangar 24. 7.8% ABV. Cost was $4.00. Reviewed from notes taken in late 2012.

A: Pours no head at all. Body colour is a vibrant copper-auburn. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.

Sm: Blood orange, nectarine, fruit, and clean biscuit malt. An average strength aroma.

T: Luscious blood orange fruit, nectary notes, tangerine, and complementary floral hops. Pale biscuit malt. Simple but quite enjoyable. Refreshing and balanced.

Mf: Smooth, wet, and luscious. Enjoyable. Good carbonation and thickness.

Dr: Quite drinkable and enjoyable. Hides its ABV well. I like it. A surprisingly tasty winter warmer from Hangar 24. Its simplicity does hold it back, however.

Tastes like flavored water. Poorly made

This "spiced strong ale" is truly bizarre. I can only think of the descriptions of pre-war English candies in "Gravity's Rainbow." Distinct touch of pickled goose berries. Sweet and sour mushrooms. Candied crab apples with a dose of quinine.

You can't ignore the taste of plastic or the scent of burning sterno. Horse blankets in the nose. It looks innocent enough, with the light amber color and decent head. Overall, it's disgusting, but in an interesting way. Hangar 24 seems to be without any shame in the crazy stuff they put on the market.

On tap at KNB in San Diego. From notes of March 10, 2012 visit.
