look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured a nice rootbeer color. Maybe a touch of copper. Foamy light tan head. Low head retention with constant light carbonation.

Notes of caramel, nuttiness, almost meaty and fennel

Flavors notes of caramel up front, dark roasted malts then bitterness from the hops with hints of grapefruit, floral and piney notes. As it opens up a bit with temperature you get a little bit more dark malt.

Mouthfeel is full bodied with a tangy bitterness and sour. Piney and floral aftertaste with a hint of nuttiness.

Overall I was a bit surprised by it. On the label it say " A malty, Robust, Jobless Recovery Ale." I kind of thought it might be a little more Porter-like but it reminds me much more of Arrogant Bastard with the dark ale and hoppiness blend. Although it was what I was expecting it was still a pleasant surprise. Full flavored, good balance, good abv. I'd recommend a try.
