I could drink this one all day if I had the chance! The pour was great with a nice dark amber color and a frothy white head that laced the glass nicely. The beer had a earthy smell that was hard to pinpoint and strangely inviting and unique. The flavor was killer! I could tell there were copious amounts of hops, but they were not of the face melting variety, more subtle and they played off the solid malt backbone very well. Again a very earthy flavor, for some reason I was reminded of peanut butter at one point! Very good mouthfeel and just dry enough in the finish to make you grab for that next sip. If you can locate this one, grab a few, you will not regret it!
