As a Star Wars fan this brew was a must. I'm just glad it tasted great too!
A: Single fingered, creamy light brown head that displayed great retention forms atop this nearly black bodied brew and slowly recedes leaving behind a good amount of lacing eventually settling to a thin foamy ring.
S: Loads of molasses, dark fruits, and dark chocolate malts. Maybe I have been spoiled with BA brews lately, but it seemed to lack complexity although the smells that are present are fantastic.
T: Dark Chocolate, some of those dark fruits poke through, and fairly dry (which I like). As the beer warms the fruit flavors really begin to show and are accompanied with a previously undetected hint of toffee.
M: Heavy, creamy, perfectly carbonated.
O: A beer worthy of its SciFi reference. Should of had the beer in the movie instead of Jar Jar!
