4.38/5 rDev +9.5%
a:very dark brown. about a finger and a half tan head which subsides to a small cap fairly quickly
s: slight roastiness. hints of chocolate. grainy malts.
t: milk chocolate accentuated with very slight hops. roasted malts.
m: creamy. medium body. medium carbonation seems just right. bit sticky on the finish
o: This is a solid beer. I'm not usually a big fan of this style but this one is very easy to drink. I know this is a one-off but I don't think I could drink more than one serving of this as I could see myself might getting tired of it for some reason. But that one time drinking it was great. Glad I had a chance to try this.

22 oz. bomber served in a Half Acre tulip.
A: Pours a very dark brown color with a thin khaki head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thin collar leaving behind some sticky lace.
S: Light roastiness with a touch of chocolate. Some grainy malt as well.
T: Milk chocolate, some restrained hop bitterness, a little bit of roast and some mild sweet vanilla. Very good.
M: Medium bodied, creamy and smooth. Medium carbonation with a very smooth and sweet finish.
O: Great flavor profile and highly drinkable. I would drink this all the time. Great beer from two great breweries!

On-tap at Half Acre. Multiple 5oz pours.
A - Tan foam settles to a partial cap, thick collar, and splotchy lacework. Dark brown-red body with some transparency to it.
S - Roasted nuts, milk chocolate, milled grains, a touch of vanilla. It's your quintessential brown ale malt bill, but amped up a bit. Not much perceptible alcohol.
T - The taste is similar, but a tad sweeter with a molasses note creeping in amid the roasted nuts and earthy grains, and malted milk chocolate. Hop character is largely restrained, imparting a touch of grass and earth and mild bitterness.
M - Nice hefty, medium-full body with a mildly chewy and sticky finish to it. Not much alcohol presence, and pleasant moderate-to-low carbonation.
D - A very solid beer; even though it's 8% it drinks a bit lighter to me. I could have tackled the 13oz goblet with ease. Drinks like a bigger and more interesting Over Ale rather than a smaller Thunder & Son in some ways. Half Acre is doing some good work with their malty beers these days.

Oddly named with an equally goofy label, thankfully the beer itself is good!
Pours a tawny brown into a tulip glass, light tan head of foam ebbs away slowly. Minimal spotty lacing, a finger of foam settles to a bare string of wispy bubbles around the edge after awhile. Reddish glints in the light, somewhat transparent.
Dry earthy aroma, a combination of roast malt and vague hops.
Flavors are dry and bitter, big roasty malt rides alongside dry bitter bakers chocolate, though there's a hint of carob and creamy chocolate sweetness. Some grassy chlorophyll from the hop additions. Nice creamy feel, light carbonation and medium bodied. Finishes very clean and smooth with a lingering hoppy bitterness. Sort of style-bending, drinks almost like a Black IPA/IBA, though brown in color with all the essential greenery.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a St. Feuillien goblet.
A: Pours a shade of deep chestnut, just shy of pitch black. Immediately, one finger of khaki colored cream forms on top and displays excellent retention. A bubbly skim leaves a surplus of lace stuck to the inside of the glass.
S: Dark fruit (raisins, plums, figs), dark chocolate, black cherry, Whoppers candy, fudge, tiramisu, pan roasted nuts, roasty malt and a hint of anise.
T: See above with more emphasis on the dark chocolate/fudge flavors as well something akin to rum raisin bread pudding. Frigging delicious!
M: Creamy and full with just the right amount of hop/alcohol spiciness. A lingering bitterness spreads itself over my tongue during the long finish.
O: What an excellent beer. Not marketed as a "holiday beer", but that's exactly the feeling I got while enjoying it. The spirit of collaboration is alive and well between these two breweries. Hopefully it's the first and not the last...
