On tap at Russian River

A: Pours very dark brown, pretty much black, though a dark ruby brown hue does come out as the glass empties, with a creamy light tan head that settles and laces well.

S: Dark roasted malt, coffee, dark fruit, and a touch of smoke.

T: Roasted malt, coffee, a touch of smoke, some pine, dark fruit, cherry and plumb, and a little light bittersweet chocolate.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation, pretty smooth.

O: I can't say much screamed Belgian, but it was a nice change of pace from all the hop bombs consumed before it.

My friend brought over a growler of Rejection to share, since I had been without a car and unable to make the pilgrimage up north myself in quite a while.

This pours a cola coffee black with big foamy bubbles, even after a day’s rest.

There’s a lightly roasted character with a floral ester quality from the Belgo-inspired yeasties.
This is surprisingly thin-bodied—delicate?—with the roast and a mellow malt finish.
