11.2 ounce bottle purchased at the North Coast Co-op in Arcata, California.

Had to pull back on the pour to prevent the head -- dense, frothy, tan, speckled with beehive-like clusters of tiny bubbles on the side of the glass -- from overflowing. Caught it just in time. Deflates neither quickly nor slowly, like a ripped air mattress. Ovals of lace cling to the glass. I've never seen lace so spare look so interesting.

As soon I started pouring, the smell slapped me lovingly across my face. A bloom of chocolate and sourdough bread. Avocado. Root beer.

The taste opens with a burly malt creature crouched in the background -- she waits a few seconds and then lunges with a sweet, rich open-handed shot of slow malt force, like peppery chocolates melted in velvet, across my palate. Aftertaste is slightly bitter, and the alcohol leaves my nose tickled.

Mouthfeel is, as I said, velvety. Just enough carbonation to curb flatness.

It's no wonder why this beer is so highly rated.
