Served in straight pint glass. Poured a clean, clear dark brown/light black color with about 1/2 inch of off-white head that had low retention and no lacing.

The aroma had a nice grain base and a crisp hop presence. The taste was similar, good, earthy malts accentuated by a bold dose of tangy hops.

The body was good, crisp, smooth and with a bit of a lingering hop bite. Drinkability was very good, you could easily have several of these tasty brews. Overall, a very nice take on the style. I don't know how often this brew makes away from the brewery, but you should try it if you ever see it.

On tap at Concordia Ale House. A very dark brown close to black beer with a khaki colored head.
The aroma consists of light chocolate, some roasted barley, and some nutty mainly walnut character. There is a tinge of citrusy hop but very reserved for most other Ninkasi beers I've been lucky to try.
Roasted and nutty character up front to match the nose, with a grainy backdrop with some earthy hop balance though the hop is subtle.
Good carbonation and solid viscosity for the style.
An easy drinking good tasting beer from Ninkasi. This is a brewery with a lot of potential.
