Perhaps these cans are a bit old, but there seems to be some oxidation in my cans, with a flat cardboard taste creeping up behind the hops, biscuit and chocolate flavors.
I don't particularly care for this beer, although it doesn't have anything particularly wrong from a style standpoint. It's a bit filling, the hops clash with the malts, and the smell is a bit papery.
I've had 3 out of the 4-pack now, and one thing I will say for it is that it went well with Sriracha on food.
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
