On tap at Lucky Baldwin's in Pasadena, CA.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy tan head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, slight cocoa, and some fresh herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with a medium amount of herbal hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer that is super drinkable but it tastes better than it smells in my opinion.

A - Poured from a growler into a snifter. About a finger of tan head. Very dark, not much light coming through. Nearly black in color. Thick lacing that sticks around.

S - Hops really stand out. Slight malty notes also present.

T - Malty up front with hops coming through in the middle and finish. Has two levels of hop flavor at each.

M - Smooth and easy drinking with a slight tingle in the throat at the end.

O - Easy drinking for a beer of this gravity but i prefer a little less "in your face" hoppiness
