Our props: 9/10
So we are a bit behind for this post. I got this beer for Michael's birthday back in March. I found it in the 'special' beer section in my favorite HT in Charlotte - known to locals as the Tajmah Teeter. Anyways, this beer is brewed by Ska brewing company, which is based out of Durango, Co. The story of their creation is pretty entertaining. Apparently all the way back in 1995, two dudes - Dave & Bill weren't quite old enough to buy beer. While listening to Ska music to drown their sorrows, they decided to turn their frowns upside down and say the heck with it, we'll brew our own! I guess they were pretty impressed with their first batch and kept at it. The rest is pretty much history. This one - the Decadent - was actually made in '05 to celebrate Ska's 10 yr anniversary. Okay enough about the background, on to the brew itself. The pour reveals a beautiful deep orange color. The brew is super smooth and is almost creamy malty. You can't even really tell that it is a 10% beer. You have to be careful with this one or you'll find yourself quite loopy! The best part about the beer is the wax top you get to peel off. Everything just seems better when you have to work to get into it. :) We'd definitely recommend it if you can find it!
