Very dark brown with huge fluffy tan head with great retention and uneven lacing. Aroma of roasted citrus hops;) Fine balance between roasted malts and hops with a coffee like finish. As it warms, a brown sugary sweetness adds another dimension. Very smooth mouthfeel with light bitter linger and a touch of carbonated bite.
A pretty tasty beer it is a very straightforward, balanced attempt at the new style. It wasn't enough to make me drool for another one but I certainly wouldn't mind another one at some point in the future, preferably warmed to nearly room temp for the added sweetness.
