Pours a half finger of head on the darkest brown body.
The aroma is grainy.
The taste is hoppy, spicy with moderate bitterness. Nice.
The texture is crisp.
It has a mellow bitterness and a nice darkness.

This is growing to be my favorite beer style, but while this beer is good, it's not in the same league as the CDAs on offer from Boneyard and Barley Browns.

Served in straight pint glass. Poured a translucent medium black, with a bit of a reddish tint, and about 1/2 inch of light khaki colored head that had moderate retention and very good lacing.

The aroma featured a solid malt foundation with some nice floral and citrus hops on top. The taste was pretty similar, nice malts, and even, complimentary hops. What I liked best was the fact that there really wasn't a noticeable roast aspect, which I generally find objectionable about the style. This beer was was nicely balanced and I liked the flavors a good bit.

The body was pretty typical, right around smoothly medium. Drinkability was very good, I had several of these a few nights ago, and I don't generally care for this style. Overall, a very good example of the style. Certainly worth your time if you see it.
