12 ounce bottle. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours a clear mahogany/ruby red color with about an inch and a half light tan head. Head retention is decent, and there's a small amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like honey, molasses, chocolate, and some nuts. The brew tastes like honey, molasses, earthiness, chocolate, nuts, and some dark bread. It's a mostly sweet tasting beer. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's smooth, a bit syrupy and easy enough to drink. I think it's a good brew. It's the first beer I've had from Off Color Brewing, and hopefully it won't be the last.

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.
