12 oz bottle poured into a New Belgium tulip glass. Dark red color; earthy hop smell with a malty background came off of the 1/2 inch off white head. Hop smell replaced by sweet rich malt while drinking. Taste reminds me of a mildly sweet stout with balanced bitter character. There was a slight alcohol burn on the back end. Thin light lacing was left on glass. Overall impression is of a half stout and half IPA to warm a cool July airconditioned evening.
