Had this one on tap at redbones at their recent pacific northwest tap takeover. This beer pours a dark dark brown to almost black color with andecen sized light brown head. The smell is roasty witha hint of hops and no sweetness. The flavor follows suit with a nice roasted malt character and a hint of hop bitterness but low residual sugar. The mouthfeel is light with good carbonation bthe beer is good but lacks the body I would have liked.
