Poured from a tallboy into a tumbler pint, the beer is a slightly hazed, slightly muddled, amber-brown coloring with a thin, filmy, off-white surface coating. Aromas of hazelnut sweetness, with a creamy undertone. The nose is not overpowering, but it is inviting. Flavors are very rich and extremely roasty. Wow...the aromas lull you into a false sense of passiveness, and then you get a fire-roasted nut sweetness and richness, followed by sharp characteristics from both the thin, carbonated body as well as the lingering charcoal highlights. Some candied sweet characteristics build slowly as you continue to drink, but the rich and roasty carry you through the whole brew. The body is light, and remains able to support the robust flavors. Slick, clean finish with only the slightest short-lived linger of sweet. Solid brown.
Serving type: can

16 ounce pint - Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a medium-toned brown body with a slim, paper thin, tan head.
Smell: Pithy, resinous top note from the hoppier elements. Muted brown sugar, nuts, ashen roast, and ineffusive chocolate powder.
Taste: Earthy, roasted nuts. Very low hint of brown sugar, even lesser hint of cocoa powder. Some ashy soot, molasses. Never much sweetness present. Resinous, citric hops with a medium-plus bitterness. Light nutty, roasty flavors, as well as some sustained, scraping resins on the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied (barely), feels a little hollow. Medium carbonation.
Overall: A muddled hop-forward brown ale that, even with the addition of extra hops, still feels bland and lifeless.
Serving type: on-tap
