a: its a real thick molasses dark brown/black color with a real pretty 3 finger tan head. the beer looks like it has volume
s: it has that sweet kolsch smell - caramel, wheat, definitely some smooth rye. on the back end of the aroma there is some molasses and brown sugar, but its light. a hint of cocoa powder as well
t: its a combination of roasted caramel, and sweet lemongrass caramel. oaky chalky chocolate then leads into the rye - it does remind me of biting into a piece of rye bread - there are definitely big bready notes in here. there is some slight bitterness from the roasted malts. something about it is light and refreshing though
m: lighter side of medium. would like to see this a bit more carbonated i think, but i think some of the rye spice flattens it out. slightly syrup-like
o: it reminds me of a black IPA without the bitter hops. its a mixture of sweet caramel, sweet citrus, roasted malts, and some dark sugars. it is a real nice blend that has a dark sugars and refreshing grains. definitely worth a pickup
