The beer was served in a 22 oz. pilsner-style glass. It had a nice frothy cotton like head. Slowly dissapated with spotty lacing. Surprisingly nice head retention. Deep red color with an orange glow where the light strikes. Slow bubbles attempt to reach the top.
Definite sign of caramel malts with hints of roasted malts in the sweet aroma. Faint scent of hops in the background.
It tastes like toasted sourdough bread with sweet caramel honey coating the top. A spicey toasted hop finish holds off the carbonation in the end.
Medium to thin mouthfeel.
I'd have to say this is an easy beer to drink. It may be a little sweeter than I prefer, but I had no problem putting back 3 deuce-deuces.
Although it's not going to break my heart that this one isn't on the shelf at one of my favorite beer purchasing establishments, I must say this will be my beer of choice the next time we decide to dine at the downtown, excuse me, UPTOWN Charlotte Uno location.
And please note if you are so inclined, that this place is located on the corner of College and 2nd, not Tryon and 2nd as it's listed. I found out the hard way.
Serving type: on-tap
