On tap in Asheville.

Clear; very dark brown; small but durable head.

Aroma: average strength for style; light smoke plus peat plus dark roasted malts.

Flavor: more hops than the nose suggested, and perhaps a touch less smoky. Nice aftertaste.

Feel: a bit too thin; relatively dry.

On tap @ Revolution Pizza & Ale House (Charlotte, NC) on 3/11/12. Served in a pint glass.

Pours a deep clear ruby, with a thin covering of off-white foamy head. This retains with some modest ringing and a frothy cascade of lacing which slowly drips down the sides of the glass. The aroma smells of coffee and maybe some lighter roasted nuttiness, with a touch of green citrus and sweeter notes of caramel and cocoa powder.

The taste is toffee and cocoa up front, with a gentle green bitterness pulling up the middle, while coffee flavor spreads out into the backend and finishes this roasty with a touch of leftover green hops. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and prickly feeling on the tongue and with then more of a firm crispness that fills out the corners of the mouth. Despite the lively feel of the carbonation, this is overall coming off as a bit thin in the mouth.

While I appreciate the sub 5% ABV for drinkability purposes, the low alcohol here ultimately also leaves this feeling a bit too light, with a presence in the mouth that is more akin to a Brown Ale at times. A bit more fullness to the body and flavors and this would really be in business. As it is, it was unfortunately a bit forgettable.
