35th Anniversary pours a black color with a small but lacing head. There is a nice smokey aroma, with burnt hop notes. The taste is very toasty, big roasted flavors, nice mellow burnt flavor. Good feel, good body, Overall its very very tasty, and very very drinkable.

Bottle I brought to share at Skuter's tasting.

Enjoy by 10/3/14.

Pours a clear dark brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, char, and slight smoke aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa, earth, and slight herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast and hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that leans more towards stout qualities all around.

Serving type: bottle.
