A: Copper, creamy white head, thick and full bodied. Not too much lacing.
S: Pretty flat. I find this is standard on a lot of nitro-tapped beers. Some faint buttery caramel, malty.
T: Intense maltiness, medium hop bitterness, but not much floral or fruity hop aroma. Very well balanced, but somehow...lacking. The flavor just seems muted.
M: So rich and thick. Very creamy too on nitro tap.
O: This would be an outstanding session beer.
Serving type: nitro-tap

3.65/5 rDev -1.9%

Poured into a pint glass.
A: Clear with a small amount of carbonation, the body is a darker, though somewhat flat, amber color. The head is frothy and off-white with decent retention and leaves some delicate and dissipating lacing.
S: The smell is noticeable right form the pour. Strong and well balanced over all. Strong hops, strong malts. There's a vanilla sweetness that really comes through that's almost too powerful. A little funk rounds it all out nicely.
T: A strong beer that trends towards the hops, though leaving a balmy maltiness to round it all out. There's a small amount of lemon citrus that undercuts it all. Pretty well balanced.
M: It's a strong beer that has a pretty bold mouthfeel as well. Creamy, smooth, carbonated; it may all be a bit too much, but I'll give credit for going big.
Serving type: bottle
