Misc.: Specially brewed for the World Cup

Poured a mahogany color with 1-2 fingers of khaki tan head when I got it. Spider web lacing along the sides of the glass. Above average retention on the top.

Smelled chocolate, citrus hops, toffee, cocoa nibs, fudge and light dog food.

Tasted similar to the nose, but without the dog food. Got chocolate, cocoa nibs, light smoky cocoa powder, citrus hops and spicy notes.

Medium body. Creamy texture. Lively carbonation. Smooth finish.

Not too bad of a beer, especially for $3. I had another one right after.
