Sample on tap at Smaltimore (3/11/14)

A: Black with only a collar head. Decent lacing.

S: Smokey rye. Watery. Burnt. Toasty.

T: Smokey but not too much. Watery. Black. Lots of rye and some malt. Eh.

M: Smooth. Massage. Bubbles.

O: Ok. I had to get this because it was $3 for a pint and it is Union's new addition to their canning line. This was decent but a bit bland.

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a cola color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of smoke, coffee, roasted malts. Taste is coffee up front, some smoke and roasted malts, touch of hops, mild bitterness. Feels light in the mouth and overall is a pretty good beer.
