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.
