A - a heavy handed pour yields a ruddy brown liquid with a billowing tower of off-white foam. Decent retention and leaves tons of lacing on the glass.
S - nose is a simple yet pleasant balance between malts and hops. Doughy dark bread and hints of milk chocolate collide with spicy and slightly citric American hops.
T - flavors are very similar to the nose. Lots of bready flavors. Mostly dough and multigrain bread. Citrus hop character presents a smooth bitterness and almost caraway like spice quality which lingers quite some time past the finish.
M - medium bodied with a slightly creamy texture. High carbonation almost fizzy.
O - not my favorite Sixpoint offering but still an enjoyable ale. Went quite nicely with cheeseburgers.
Serving type: bottle

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
