Postmortem Brew Review
Copper color body.
Bready, malty aroma with soft hops and fruit aroma.
Off white minimal head that settles to a cover.
Little head, but good spot and string lacing down the glass.
Sweet malty taste with some tropical fruit notes.
Creamy sweet sugary twang at end of each sip.
Slight alcohol notes as it warms up.
Medium bodied mouth feel.

Grim Reaper's Eulogy 
I came across this brew, served on tap, while out of town on a business trip.  I decided to reap its reward of flavor.  This is quite an interesting beer, perhaps because it is locally brewed in FL.  Sweet fruity taste at times and a sleeper at 9.5% ABV.  You hardly notice the alcohol content for the delicious taste wrapped around it.

I was told that it is currently only in kegs at the moment, so tough luck if you aren't in their delivery area.  However, that is excellent luck for the rest of us!
