Postmortem Brew Review
Deep brown in color.
Nicely balanced malt smell & taste.
Also a balanced amount of hops.
Good lacing of head. 

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
Wasn't too sure about this one at first because of the word 'bitters' in the name. I mean, c'mon...what can be so 'extra special' about something like 'bitters' ??? Come to find out it is just a good balancing of hops to punch up the taste. It wasn't awful, but could had been a bit better. Overall though it drank very well with the meal I ate.

Note: There are a bunch of tiny green dragons as a watermark running throughout the label which is kinda' neat. But the real cool factor is a big-ass, red dragon on the label. Us reapers like cool big-ass, red dragons!
