Smell out of bottle is malty. A little molasses.
First taste out of bottle is smokey and caramelly.
Appearance is nice, solid dark red with ruby edges against glass. Tan head forms, retains easy.
Taste out of glass is again smokey, caramelly, esspresso.
Very smooth, low bitterness,
Carbonation is really nice, plays with the consistency of the beer.
Lacing dominates the glass.
While this is a great beer and easily drinkable, it's missing the one standout thing that could give it a perfect score.
Serving type: bottle
