My review of this beer in the bottle is here: http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/147/92/?ba=mullenite
Again a beautiful looking beer. Reddish-brown in color with a one finger white head. Lots of lacing all the way down the glass.
Smelled strongly of pine hops and dark caramel malts (lots of chocolate and caramel sweetness.) No citrus or herbal character, just lots of pine and earthiness from the hops.
Taste was similar to the smell, noticeable hop aroma and lots of chocolate in the after taste. Much different than the bottled version in my opinion. Very well balanced.
Medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Very slick mouthfeel.
Overall I like that tap version much better than the bottle, to the point where this is all I've been drinking when I go out anymore.
Serving type: on-tap
