The body appears a deep reddish-brown, topped with a very thick, creamy, and sticky white head. Rich rye spiciness floating in the aroma; cola-like; caramel sweetness to the smell. Big, rye bread flavor; cookie dough sweetness; well-tempered hop bitterness throughout the taste experience. Heavy body; big sugary feel without being cloying.

This is an amazingly heady malt bomb, packed with rye spiciness, superb malt sweetness, and well-tempered hop bitterness and bite. From the incredible sticky, brittle sheets of lacing on the glass to the evil malt sweetness and sugary feel spiked with a delicious rye pep in the flavor and the nearly decadent pleasure of the heavy, rich mouthfeel, this is one winner of a beer. An exceptional find and even better drinking experience.

Nice frothy head with great retention and sip analyzing lacing. Aroma of straight up marshmallow. Taste started incredibly strong with the caramel marshmallow overpowering everything, as I went along some hop/malt presence became more apparent but the caramel remained throughout. This beer has an incredible rich feel that is only enhanced by the caramel taste. Very interesting.

Serving type: on-tap

Pours a nice reddish amber with decent head. Despite it's light color, this thing pours nice and thick! Very surprised with the hefty body. Smells clean and piney typical of an IPA. Taste is wonderful. Nice clean and refreshing but not thin. Has wonderful mouthfeel and nice and creamy with no bitterness. A great fantastic beer.
