Served in a pilsner glass. Dark brown, almost opaque, with a thick, tan head. Looks pretty nifty.
Smells of yeast and grain, with something sweet under the surface.
Slightly bitter, turning sour/sweet as it hits the back of the tongue. The flavor intensifies over the course of the pint, sharpening in some ways, mellowing in others in a constant cavalcade of ever-changing flavor profiles.
Creamy with no bite, this has excellent mouthfeel. It's foamy, not over-carbonated, and pleasant.
This beer was a pleasant surprise. I found myself in Utica, NY for work, and the trip wasn't so great, but then I found this! Awesome.
Serving type: on-tap

3.25/5 rDev -11.7%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.25
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A - A rigorous pour yields a 1 finger head that doesn't last too long. Color is a mostly opaque blackish amber. Looks kinda like a coke. Lacing is moderate.
S - Dark smoky malt. Alcohol.
T - Licorice and dark malt up front with a dry bitter finish. Alcohol is certainly evident.
M - A bit overcarbonated for the style. I felt like it amplified the bitterness making for a rather unbalanced beer.
O - A strong ale that doesn't really shine in the flavor department. It is certainly strong in some aspects but unbalanced.
