A clear, dark red to light brown colored beer with a rocky, tan 1.5 inch head. Great retention and lacing.

Floral and spicy hops in the aroma. Some roasted malt sweetness in the background.

The flavor is more to the malt side than the aroma would suggest. There's an upfront dark, burnt sugar flavor along with roasted grains and slight alcohol. Some hop flavor in the finish, along with plenty of bitterness.

A medium bodied beer. Smooth, with delicate carbonation. A wet, yet bitter finish.

A great beer. But, a slightly smoother flavor would have been more up my alley.
