Dark amber color with a light brown head. The head is small but frothy, with big bubbles bursting into craters on top. Very clingy with good lacing to the glass. Aroma is light hop. Flavor hits the front of the tongue with a hop bitterness, and finishes with well-rounded malt, some fine roasted nuances. Very smooth mouthfeel.
Serving type: on-tap

A: The beer is very hazy amber in color (with some yellow hues) and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high dense tan colored head that died down, leaving a layer of bubbles covering the surface, a collar around the edge and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: When the beer is first poured, notes of chocolate are present in the smell; this quickly transitions to aromas of tea leaves and toasted malts.
T: The taste has flavors of nutty and toasted malts along with notes of earthy yeast and hints of black tea and toffee.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a little thin (but not watery) on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and seems to be an average representation of the style.
