3.13/5  rDev -20.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass. Served at about 55 degrees f.

A: Pours quickly and easily without much of a head. What head there is, is simply a fizzle of sea foam.

S: Smells of wet earth and dirty tobacco. Don't detect any special fruityness or hops on the nose.

T: Meh. Underwhelmed. The flavor is like wet leather crossed with tobacco. The middle is wet horseblanket with very little hops presence. Definite nuttyness hits the back.

M: Softly carbonated, starts and finishes wet on the tongue. Not crisp, more of a coating beer that would do better paired with a meal than consumed solo.

O: It's a funky example of a brown. I could picture drinking this while chewing on a cohiba cigar. I caught no banana esters or diacetyl apple on my bottles. No signs of infection.
