    Not sure what to think of this, It's possible that KH has ruined me.. I like the beer good enough I suppose, but there seems to be an off taste to me. This is a 2011 and my only experience with this beer. I may have to go for a fresh bottle in the future. Overall though, I'm very glad to have tried it.

    Man I love that beer. It is all that is good about roasted malt and genius brewing.

    I love the Ancient Ales from Dogfish Head, but this was my least favorite - too much like a dank apple-pomegranate juice drink. Maybe I need to try it again some time, but for now I'm glad I have a couple of favorites on hand for later: North Coast's Old Stock Ale and an Old Rasputin.

    Until then... ciao...

    Ironically- you just got me interested in that beer with your description. I think I would love dank apple-pomegranite juice drink. Sorry it's not working for you, but at least you have others on deck.

    Still sitting in my office, organizing my teaching stuff for tomorrow and listening to Milton Nascimento (been a lot of Brazilian stuff today, mainly Gilberto Gil and Gal Costa) but I think it'll be a bottle of Bigfoot for me tonight. That, or Racer 5. Picked up a bomber the other day with the intent of enjoying and writing proper review of it, finally.

    First time trying this, the manager at the store saved me one from his case for when I came in, which just so happened to be on my birthday today! What a guy

    This one was unique for sure! I had to try on the merit of the name of Etruscans!

    REAL solid stout, but unfortunately the taste doesn't deliver quite as well as the aroma does. Aroma is fantastic on that one.
