Poured from the bottle into a mug.
A- deep copper-brown color with a fluffy, white head that retained two fingers for several minutes.
S- Maybe it's just me but I didn't pick up a lot in the smell department. A bit of spicy bread perhaps.
T- One of the best-tasting beers I've had out of a bottle. Wonderful semi-sweet malts at the front remind of chocolate-chip pancakes. Peppery spice emerges, then the piney hops come in at the end with notes of fruit (black cherry?).
M- On the thick side, it hangs on to your tongue, which helps to release the complex taste at a moderate pace. Lingers. Not highly carbonated.
O- Very good beer. Big and complex, yet drinkable. Bargain at $14.99 for 12.
