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.

Pours a deep, dark amber color with a small amount of tan head that doesn't last long.

The scent is of roasted caramel malt, some notes of chocolate.

The taste is predominantly of roasted malt, some notes of caramel, some notes of herbal hops, chocolate and molasses are also apparent.

Medium body, quite smooth, with moderate carbonation.

This was an overall pretty good beer, the flavors weren't especially balanced due to the overwhelming malt flavor, but it was still quite tasty.
