The unofficial name for this beer is “Super Glide”. Malty rich with a hint of spicy hops and roasted grains. This beer is one smooth ride with a clean finish!

Pours a slightly hazy dark copper color with a smallish off white head that doesn't stick around very long. The aroma is quite malty with lots of caramel and toffee with hints of chocolate and a faint earthy hop deep underneath. The flavor follows the aroma quite well with toffee and caramel in the foreground and hints of chocolate and earthy hop bringing up the rear. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet light syrupy mouthfeel. Decent beer, feels like a brown ale at times, but it's a nice gateway style beer.
