A dark brown color, this beer looks a lot like cola both in the color and the bubbling near-effervescence. The off-white head spritzes down quickly, and it looks more soda-like as the edges lighten and thin. There's not much lace, but a little.
There's a mingling of tangy and sweet on the nose, toasty and nutty in a particular way, with an unusual note I can only think of as grist. There's a slight dry bitterness, too.
The flavor brings a bit more roast, downright toasty in the middle, with strong notes of dry and soft malts and grains. There are fruity esters throughout, a little leafy bitterness that seems almost woody as it dries, and a finish of baker's chocolate.
The body is just short of effervescent and rests on the border of light and medium. It's starts off with the promise of a bigger body, sweetness, maybe even creaminess, but dries out (which is nice) and still keeps some smoothness. It does go a little thinner than the style calls for, but all in all it's good stuff.

A- pours out dark brown and appears black in the glass. A very thin off white head that fizzles out and leaves a white ring around the glass.
S- very grainy, dark wheat, earthy aromas
T- similar to the nose very raw and grainy, finishes with a subtle sweetness that lingers pleasantly. Honey comes through nicely.
M- thin body with moderate carbonation. A good amount of residual sweetness for a 5 percenter that rounds the beer out.
O- I'm glad I grabbed this in my travels. It's a very tasty, easy drinking beer. Surprised by the blend of raw grain and sweetness.
