The beer pours a deep, dark brown color. A decent, light-tan head provides a decent lacing. Smoky aromas dominate the nose, and hints of chocolate and cocoa poke through as well. Roasted malts mix with smoke on the palate while a thin earthiness and a touch of nuttiness make an appearance before fading into a spicy hop bitterness. Medium-light in body, Kidd is moderately carbonated.

This is a roasty black that is almost a rauchbier. It is black and nearly opaque but with very little head.. The aroma is close to that of a smoked beer.

The taste is of smoke as well, roasty to an extreme. Otherwise it has a clean crisp taste, and the aftertaste works the same way - very cleanly.

Kidd is one of many Colorado beers we are drinking this week while skiing in Vail. Like many of the others, it is a credit to the state.
