Pours an opaque, very dark brown with a root beer head. Aromas of malted milk balls and cascade hops. The mouthfeel is soft and wet, but less viscous than the eyes would lead one to expect. A delightful mild carbonation scrub on the finish. Flavors are characterized by chocolate and tart citrus. Some floral essence as the olfactory becomes more involved in the taste. Lastly, a little smokiness that the hop bitterness tends to perpetuate. I've never been remarkably impressed with this beer. Don't get me wrong, it's better than average, but by Deschuttes standards, it is nothing about which to get too excited. Especially for the price.

A: Black with a creamy lightish brown head.
S: Lots of floral and citric hops in the nose, and maybe just a touch of roasted malt, coffee, and dark chocolate.
T: Tons of pine and floral hops, yet not overly bitter, some citrus, some coffee and roasted malt. Hop heavy.
M: Smooth and full bodied, a bit creamy.
O: A great example of the style, and one of my favorites from Deschutes.
