On draft at Pizza Port, Ocean Beach.
Had an amazing beer before this so maybe my sights were set too high. Wasn't that into it.
Strong malt and some hint of some spice, but the sharp taste was too bitter/sour for me. Had trouble getting this one down. Almost tasted like something "was wrong" with the beer. Regardless, I won't be seeking this one out again.
Serving type: on-tap

A: Ruby/copper, hazy and even some distinguishable sediment, little head, a few lazy bubbles rise.
S: Smoke and coffee, caramel, something else akin to the smell of an old person's house, like raw wheat stalks; it's kinda endearing, but not something I want for too long.
T: Caramel, coffee, a little smoke, and.... something chemically, like vinegar. Stale malt perhaps? It's prominent, a significant blemish on this otherwise great beer. My score is lofted only because this is expected of the style, but my personal dislike will probably keep me from a return to this one.
M: Light, somewhat filmy. It would be very drinkable, were it not for that abrasive flavor.
O: I'll need to get used to the style before I can enjoy this one. Definitely has promising notes, and overall a perfect candidate for the style, but my personal aesthetic score would be noticeably lower.
Serving type: bottle
