On tap at The Good Life - Massapequa NY

A - Pours a golden color with plenty of clarity. Some carbonation is noted. A thin white foam is noted on top.

S - Impressive earthy scent. Floral smell, with a dominant sweet scent of honey. After settling the fresh basil smell is more noticeable. This is the best quality of this beer. The complexity of different aromas stands out.

T - Very sweet taste. The honey flavor is fresh and does not taste like cheap flavoring. Crisp hoppiness is secondary. Finish has a slight acidic burn.

M - This would be perfect in the spring. Very refreshing, great balance, and slight carbonation.

O - I've had the chance to try the Hellsmoke Porter, and along with this gem I'm happy to have this local beer available occasionally. Certianly worth trying for the originality.

On tap at brewery. Hazy golden pour, small creamy head, fine rings of lacing coat the glass. Mild herbal aroma, fuller savory/sweet flavor. Almost peppery, but honey smooths it out. Sweet, mildly dry finish.
