Spilt a few bottles with some f riends
A- dark dark brown/back with a nice one finger slightly brownish head , not to much lacing, a nice lookin beer.
S- love it... Slightly roasted chocolate, almost a marshmallowy, a bit of smoke, an amazingly complex roasty/creamy aroma profile, I love it.
T- much like the nose but a little tones down from the aroma, a very nice, but not overly done rauching, with roasty chocolate, and a beautiful hop profile that works very nicley with the style.
M- creamy and smooth with a slight bitter hop finish... Very very well rounded, lower carbonation, velvety.
O- a great beer, i really love these beers, everything I've had from these guys have been impressive, and this is no exception.

I have been waiting for a beer like this for a long time. This beer really combines the best aspects of a German Schwarzbier with an American hoppy (fill-in-the-blank).
Well balanced from start to finish, I was struck immediately by the aroma. When I popped the top, a strong piney smell wafted up to my nose. The nose is strong with pine forest, slight smoke, coffee, and citrus – the Cascade hops really shine through the nose.
Pouring a reddish-brown, dark (but not black), and a large head, the beer invites you in from the beginning. A wonderful taste follows: hoppy up front, evolving to a rich, roasted malt backbone, finishing again with a pleasant hoppy bitterness. And always balanced.
I think this is a great beer. And for the price ($3.99 for 16.9 oz), it can't be beat.
I'm looking forward to more from Jack's Abby. Congratulations!
