Way to go Uinta for putting a bottled on date. This batch was bottled on 5-27-11 only ten days ago. I got the bottles in a four pack from the brewery for 7 dollars and change.

Appearance: Held up to a light, this beer is dark brown but clear in my goblet. The pour resulted in an off white head that took a little while to settle and leaves a decent amount of lacing.

Smell: Hops and malts! The hops component is a bit piney, earthy and maybe a little floral. The malts are roasted.

Taste: This beer is hard to describe. The malts are roasted in a way to have a bittersweet flavor with a hint of toasted coconut on the finish. The hops are a mixture of what was noted in the smell. Nice pine, earthy, and dank hops flavors. The alcohol is slightly noticeable at 9.2 ABV, but I don't think that I would want to age this to mellow out, as the hops flavors would be muted. I am not sure I can sense the hemp seed other than an overall sort of "herbal" note to the taste.

Mouthfeel: I have said other beers coat the mouth with flavor in some of my other ratings, this one takes it to a new level. The finish is very drawn out. The bittersweetness of the malts and the bitterness of the hops linger without being a bother. These are flavors that I want to stick around for a long time. The body is thick and velvety while the carbonation is just enough to balance.

Overall: This is a really complex beer, and a nice interpretation of the CDA style. The flavor goes on and on. I can only recommend this for the adventurous sort as the flavors are really intense. Those that can handle it will be rewarded. I also suggest trying it fresh.
