Had this on 2012-08-10 in Columbia, PA
A - Almost clear ruby-brown with a 1-finger offwhite head and very good lacing.
S - Floral hops, bready malt, caramel. Not real strong.
T - Some hops up front then a big malt blast that is rich in spice and caramel. A good amount of bitterness comes in followed by citrus and chocolate. Balanced aftertaste of orange slices dipped in chocolate trailing off with some teal-like hop flavor and nice bitterness. Rich tasting.
M - Medium body and light-medium carbonation. Initially thick and creamy like an oatmeal stout but thins and dries a bit.
O - An interesting brew. Reminds me of a Founders Breakfast Stout in some ways except the emphasis is on citrus, caramel and chocolate. Definitely worth trying.
