12oz. bottle poured into a snifter—serving as a replacement for my broken goblet.
A: A deep-reddish amber hue, close to a mahogany, but not quite. An off-white, slightly khaki colored one-finger head starts off looking nice, but eventually fades to nearly nothing. A legion of pen-dot sized bubbles remains on top with a ring of equally tiny bubbles around the edges. One or two instances of lacing left down the glass.
S: Some under-roasted malts with hints of dark fruit and some breadiness. Hints of caramel and brown sugar underneath.
T: Lots of roasted malt upfront, giving this a slightly burnt profile with some chocolate-covered raisin flavor underneath. A little bit of nuttiness and earthiness from the yeast comes through in the finish, but is short-lived due to being overtaken by those burnt characteristics.
M: Medium-bodied with a crisp carbonation. Flows smoothly across the palate, with a moderately creamy texture. Nothing to write home about, but definitely above-average drinkability.
O: Flying Fish definitely didn't make a bad brew here, but it's just slightly underwhelming. The roasted profile is a bit too pronounced, which makes for a very burnt/smoky experience. This might be good at the pub, or paired with some food, but it didn't exactly impress me as a sip-at-home brew. Worth a try; not worth a re-buy.

A- A reddish amber color that is clear. really no head and minimal lacing.
S- Vinegar malts and roasted nuts. I get some sugary hints as well maybe molasses. Smell is very inviting.
F- dark chocolate roasted malts dominate the mouth. molasses or some sort of dark candied sugar fruit. I cant put my tongue on it.
M- malty and creamy. It gets to be struggle as you get closer to the bottom. The malts tend to over dominate.
O- not a bad brew but not sure I would have it at a bar. It is worth a try but nothing more.
