Postmortem Brew Review
Amber red, dark and clear in color.
Citrus and piney at the same time on the nose with little else present.

Off white
head, two finger head that leaves sticky draped lacing.
Hops that last throughout the session. Nice presence of malt; balanced nonetheless.
Full bodied and great sticky hops mouth feel.

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
What a find. I was in CT visiting family at the crypt up north and discovered this hiding in the smallest but nicest of beer/wine stores. I was looking for other brews, but could not pass this one up for the cute little Boston Terrier on the label. Such a cutie! Uh, ahem, Reaper! Let's remember we have a fearsome presence to uphold!

Anyway, the ale is terrific and was great to share on this Easter weekend with family at the southern most Florida crypt location. Such a sticky piney tasting brew. We shared until the little fellow gave no more.

Try to find some of this where you live. It is made in Idaho, but seems to have far distribution, at least to Connecticut. Don't let the 10% ABV "sneak" up on you. WOOF!

Good dog.
