Sampled at Denver. A midnight black color with good viscous when swirled. A soft tan had with good retention but a bit thicker bubbles.
The nose is a bit unique. The graham cracker/bready quality comes out very nicely. Some noticeable darker malts, chocolate and a hint of toffee. Some what a light yeasty note with a light rose peddle quality (im sensitive to that). Some minor alcohol notes but over all pretty clean.
The taste was balance between the graham cracker flavor and a nice astringency from the darker malts. Came out more of a malt ball-esk type of taste. Some biscuit/nutty notes that was a bit of a distraction. But good chocolate notes. Some yeast notes, maybe a minor coconut flavor. Some rose peddles, but less so versus the nose. For the most part very clean
The body is moderate but leaves a lingering sweetness. Not necessarily under attenuation, but sweetness lingers. This does balance though with the astringent notes from the dark malts. Very drinkable. Carbonation is a bit light. Overall pretty good, with some minor changes that are probably more personal than anything else.

A peculiar flavor that goes downhill, and not in the usual Colorado way. Dark brown, not much of a foam, though adequate carbonation in the mouth. Interesting aroma of burnt toast.
This starts with a slightly sweet mellow note and descends into a darker, dishwatery region. I guess you can tell your taste buds it's graham crackers. Seems to get oddly bitter like juniper twigs. Surprising winey flavor full of tannins. Not pleasant, and leaves a medicinal aftertaste. On tap at the brewpub in lower downtown Denver.
