The sewage smell was actually surprisingly faint - meaning I was expecting a nose-full of poop when we opened it but it was much less egregious.

The taste was quite fantastic though - really like a warm apple pie. It's too bad this was infected...I'd love to get more!

Exploded on opening. Could smell the sour infection and later taste it in a small sip of it as well. Full drain pour.

Really worried about this one after all the reviews. Got the thick wax off, popped the cap, and.....whew, no sulfury/terrible smell.

Was that a little sour on the nose? Hard to say, could be the apple Brandy barrel, maybe I'm just being a little over critical.

Taste was very interesting. I'm getting a little cinnamon, some apple, then the brandy finish

It's a little thin for my liking. Maybe a stout or a BW would hold up these flavors better? Hard to say. Still enjoyable and frankly I was just glad it wasn't an infected mess.

Absolute wreck. Infected and lost half the bottle when it exploded 3 feet in the air upon breaking the cap seal. Remaining beer wasn't the worst thing i have had, but tasted like nothing but cinnamon and rotting apples.
