From a tall-boy can, purchased for a dollar at my local Trader Joe’s.
This pours a ruddy toasty near black-slash-ruby red (when backlit) with rapidly dissipating foam. It has a rounded toasty aroma, roasty enough for me with some toffee and a touch of caramel to the coffee-bean quality aroma. I found it light and pleasing.
The flavor is smooth with enough sharpness to keep it defined, while not getting bogged down by being cloying or overly sweet. The roast profile gives it enough of an edge to keep its definition. Being what it was I liked this beer. It's approachable, interesting, and I'm looking forward to another.
