This thing was super lame, very dry, biscuity, lots of burnt traits in here, not like a smokey kind, but more like bitter, acrid flavors. Aroma doesnt present anything particularly special. I was really hoping for a mildly sweet roasty brown, but this is just like an amber ale really.
Its got plenty of bitterness thats for sure, but its missing the malt balanced that it needs.

It has a fairly plain metallic malt taste. Carbonated and refreshing, kind of light. There's a bit of a grape fruitiness to it. It just tastes fairly plain. It's not bad at all, but it doesn't carry much flavor.

It has a nice brown color, basically completely see-through. It's very bubbly throughout. It has a foamy white head, tannish, with some lacing. Not much of a scent to it. Kind of metallic.
