A: Dark brown with a ruby tinge, slightly cloudy and you can’t see any carbonation. Three whopping fingers of beige foamy head.

S: Coffee, chocolate, dark toasted malts, vanilla, orange candy, citrusy.

T: Dark toasted malt, coffee and dark chocolate with citrusy notes, orange candy and vanilla, then a metallic note on the end. Light bitterness. Light sweetness.

M: Thick bready, lightly syrupy body. Medium foamy carbonation.

O: The dark malt and light citrusy combination remind me of a lighter version of a black IPA. Really enjoyable. Got this at Whole Foods in Savannah, drank it in Tampa July 21st, 2014.

12 ounce can canned in April 2013. Thanks Brandon!
Pours clear, deep reddish brown in color, with a small but durable tan head.

Aroma: a balanced and very appealing mix hops and malts.
The flavor leans more to the hoppy side, and is certainly a bit hoppy for style.
Medium body; crisp, medium+ carbonation.

Serving type: can

What a pleasant surprise!

A: Thick creamy head with nice lacing.

S: A little mineral, a little chocolate.

T: Malt in the front, shivery soapy hops at the aftertaste. Quite a hoppy brown, really - but without screaming 'ZOMG 'Hopzorz!1!' at you. It's nicely balanced and not medicinal at all. The aftertaste IS a smidge medicinal though, an inevitable outcome of the hops.

MF: Round, not too prickly.

Serving type: on-tap
