Pours an attractive ruby-tinted dark brown in the tall goblet. A low beige head caps the brew nicely. Some silky oatmeal consistency.
Well, the word for the flavor is "grainy." Interesting persistent spicy tang. Lots of blackened malt, or dark toasted amaranth, or some such. I wondered what the other unusual charred flavor was, and looking at the label, it's coffee. Some sweet malt offset by the rather bitter finish.
An interesting quaff, and I'm glad to see the experimentation with the non-traditional fermentables. Though I think the jury's still out on the oddball grains. From the 22 oz bottle bought at Bottleworks in Seattle.
