It was a hot day in NYC when I heard a POP stemming from one of my beer collection boxes. Drat, another beer popped open prematurely. It was my foolish decision to buy so many beers in advance, thinking that I would be able to hold them and cherish them throughout the months and years, simply eschewing the need to buy beers in future by referencing and picking off something from my curated collection.
It was time to check over the collection, I suppose. So I looked through a couple of the boxes of cans on my floor. All were save there, then I moved up on my shelves. Then in one of my boxes of sours I spotted the culprit. It was Supper Table that I purchased in North Carolina. Thankfully the beer did not pop when it pinged, but it was clearly bursting at the seams and it was only a matter of time. So without delay, I put it in my freezer to drink in a few hours, knowing full well it may finish off its explosive tendencies over my roomates frozen goods.
So an hour or two passes and here I am drinking this particular beer:
Hefty froth on each pour. Not any sort of active yeast scent going on here but the head is hyperactive as all hell.
Burnt orange to light brown body. Head itself being beige. Pleasant scent emitting from the can and glass, much akin to other Thanksgiving and holiday dinner themed beers I've had before (mostly just the one from Terrapin).
It's got a crisp, metallic taste. I almost taste brussels sprouts, but I'm sure this thing is just brewed with sweet potatoes. Come to think of it I do taste sweet potatoes, though in like a sweet potato chip taste and not necessarily a candied sweet potato casserole that the addition of the spices listed on the beer would assume.
Either way, it's alright but nothing decadent. May very well pair well with an autumnal holiday dinner though. Also, great art on the can A+.
Pours a clear auburn color with a half finger off white head that is quick to fade.Ginger and clove aromas stand out most with underlying sweet potato.Overly spiced with ginger and clove,it's actually spicy but not in a good way,a little earth in the finish.Ouch a drain pour for me.
