look: 4.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

On tap at Jeffersons in Murfreesboro, TN

Appearance: dark mahogany brown/black with slightly off white head, great head retention

Smell: roasted malts, coffee, earthy herbal hoppiness, dark chocolate, minor vanilla

Taste: roasted malts and dark chocolate with a very notcieable earthy hop presence, very smooth but could be a little more balanced.

Mouthfeel: average carbonation with a pretty full body.

Overall: great fresh local beer, if your in town i would seek this out, but i like Angry Redhead better. Pairs great with burger and fries.

Serving type: on-tap

Poured from the tap at the brewery this had a chocolate brown coloring with a thick foamy head and a ton of lacing.

The scent held a lot of chocolate malt with a bit of caramel. There was some dry floral hoppiness and some barley grains.

The flavors held many of the properties of the scent as the chocolate malt comes out first. The hops then get mingled within the caramel and grains.

The feel is smooth but the carbonation is little high.

3.58/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: dark amber, blackish, thin white head with a thick lacing that is maintained throughout when tilting the glass. The head has dispersed making it easy to see through it.

The aroma is chocolatey hoppy, kinda reminds me an imperial IPA or choclatey stout.

The taste contains roasted malts with a chocolatey taste on the forefront. It's a very smooth beer. I can't taste the alcohol.

The mouthfeel is thin with slight carbonation

Overall, this is a great beer. I was very pleased with the result of this one. I can tell that Mayday cares about having a great quality brew.

Had on tap at the tasting room.Poured into a standard pint glass a dark chocolate brown with a lighter beige head atop.Aromas of chocolate malts and leafy/herbal hops,the chocolate malt aromas really stand out.Flavors are like the nose with a real pronounced chocolate maltiness with a nice shot of herbal and grassy hops in the finish.A well made beer,the hops don't hit very hard but it has good complexity.
