Thanks to deliriumfest for the Bender!
Pours out a super dark brown...not see through at all. The Bender has a nice off white head that resides too quickly, which lowered the score. But the color is incredible for a brown. The aroma is immediately of brown sugar and then hops. The taste is similar but I am getting a wonderful brown ale flavor; sweet, sugary, but with an awesome crisp hop touch. It is super bitter also...awesome. It drinks heavier than I thought I would...and that;s a compliment. Great beer and great to know it's 5% since I could drink a lot of these...even though I wish it were higher haha.

Pours a dark brown head with an inch or so of light brown head. A tad bit dark for Decent retention and a good amount of lacing. A little bit of mild sweetness in the aroma paired with dark chocolate and a little nuttiness. Good balance in the taste. Nothing over the top. A little bit of sweetness, followed by caramel. Lightly roasted coffee and slight hints of chocolate.A little bit thinner than I expected, with a touch of creaminess. Goes down really easy. I could knock back a few of these.
Overall, I consider this one to be a curious case. This is the second can of this that I've had. The first one was a bit fresher. I'm not liking it as much this time around. The aroma and taste seem a bit milder this time around.
