Pours a clear medium brown producing 1.5 fingers of frothy, tan, shortlived head that leaves a slim surface ring & a thin wash of pasty lacing. Aroma dark malt, toast, chocolate, toffee & faint roasted nuts. Taste is fronted by toasted brown bread, a hint of cocoa, roasted nuts, caramel & dark fruity notes at mid-sip & finishing with a note of toffee & bitterness. Aftertaste is burnt malt bitter cocoa & cola caramel. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation, smooth & creamy with a nice prickly bite.

Pours a medium brown color with a white head. The aroma is full of caramelized malts and a bit of herb, The taste is malty but with some herbal, seedy, rooty flavor from the hemp. Bitter and rooty, with a nice nutty malty sweetness. Even a hint of fruit finds way across seed and grain. Medium bodied, well carbonated, enjoyable and drinkable. Overall, a very good ale. Ya Mon!
