Thanks to Ballewblake for bringing this to Brooklyn for Biscodoll and thanks to Biscodoll for providing a few as a delivery gratuity.
I never thought I'd be reviewing a New Belgium beer while I lived in Brooklyn.
Pours a dark brown that is clear with a thin creme/tannish head that falls to nothing. Nose is supremely odd. Very much like a porter with the roasted and coffee tones. Flavor is nice and robust, though not overly complex in nature. Again, it hits me like a porter. Roasted and vaguely like a schwarzbier (yes I have had a few different ones recently to compare to). The area it sways towards Belgian is in the feel and the slightly different sweet tone. Overall this is a very nice beer. Definitely worth trying and definitely one of New Belgiums better offerings.
