12oz bottle poured into a nonic pint.
A - Dark amber with great clarity. Off-white cap of foam holds a cap. Spotty lacing.
S - Biscuit malt that jumps right into some coffee with little in between. Plenty of DMS.
T - Taste follows the nose. If I closed my eyes, I wouldn't know there were any kilned malts in this from all the base flavors. Prickly carbonation on top of some mild sweetness. Finishes with some bitterness.
M - Light to medium-light body, medium to medium-high carbonation, semi-dry.
O - It's good to support local breweries so in a pinch I would order this but not over most American craft beers. This beer has some aroma flaws and really lacks all character in the taste.
Recommendation - Pass this up.

Served slightly chilled in a standard pint glass at a local bar.
A=Very dark brown, with a slight hint of red...almost opaque. A thin, ecru foam head was less than standard.
S=Nice smell of malt--cocoa and cream.
T=Rather strong taste of semi-sweet chocolate at first, with a bit of coffee and biscuit...seemed to turn sweeter and lighter as I drank. Somewhat of a mix between semi-sweet chocolate and milk chocolate, but not bitter.
M=Lighter body than I anticipated, with a lower amount of carbonation. I would have preferred it to have a bit more body, but the lightness makes it a good session beer.
O=I enjoyed this beer and would buy it again...I had paired it with a hamburger,but drank most of it before the burger arrived...still, it was light enough to compliment the burger rather well.
Serving type: on-tap
