Poured into a pint glass from a 22oz bottle.
Beautiful dark copper color that becomes a brilliant near-orange when held to light. Massive foamy head--the best I've seen this side of Orval.
Unexpectedly subtle smell and flavor. Nice bitterness lingers on the tongue. More balanced than the color and alcohol content would suggest.
Bear Republic beers have a gritty hard-nosed feel (like Knob Creek, as opposed to Makers Mark) and this is not an exception; however it is more smooth than Racer 5.
