Poured into a Sam Adams glass.
Holy carbonation! Tough to pour this one. The head on this one stuck around at about a half inch for a good hour. Nice lacing. Copper color, as advertised.
Smell is generic, but a little too much like a day-old empty beer bottle to be remarkable. Has some malty sweetness, with a hint of a bottle redemption center. Meh.
Taste is decent, and a little unexpected. The flavors were much, much better the warmer this got. Fresh out of the fridge, it was metallic and a little dry. As it warms, it turns roasty, with a hint of smokey malt. There's a a bit of melon fruitiness, with some hop backing. Overall, decently complex.
Mouthfeel is OK, but there is just a ton of carbonation. It seems like the savory, roasted flavors would shine a bit more with a bit less bubbly.
Overall, this is a fairly nuanced, yet accessible brew. Decent.
