South Carolina

4.1/5  rDev +12.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12 oz bottle served in an Anchor Steam pint glass.

Pours a very dark, reddish-brown with moderate size but thick tan head. The head dies down to a ring rather quickly but leaves some splotchy lacing.

There's plenty of unexpected piney hops in the aroma, and a bit of this carries over to the initial part of the taste. The flavor, however, quickly becomes dominated by a fine dark malt flavor that lingers for a while. The dark malt is evident in aroma, just less than might be expected given the flavor. Hints of dark malt, molasses and citrus fruits in the aroma, and of toffee, coffee, roasted nuts and caramel in the flavor.

M: clean and rather crisp for style, thanks to the extra hops and a medium or higher level of carbonation. Medium body.

O: unusual, easy-drinking, and flavorful, with interesting and well-balanced flavors that change from the time this hits the tongue until the lingering aftertaste slowly fades away.
