On tap and Underground Bluz. Beer poured a deep orange with a ruby cast. It sported a bubbly small head.
The aroma is (predictably) citrusy but the smoky bar prevented much more delineation.
The taste was surprising. Heavy malts almost like a strong Belgian ale. Very complex flavor. Anise and raison being the most notable. Hop profile is deep and smoldering. It hangs from the back of your throat like a sleeping bat. Smoky and nasty.
Definitely an interesting brew. I am not giving it higher marks because the taste does not fit the style. It's too sweet.
Medium drinkability. This one cannot be rushed through. Thick texture. Long finish.
Serving type: on-tap
