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.

On tap at Russian River in Santa Rosa. Brown color, dark looking. Aroma was sweet, chocolate, nice. Flavor was quite good, chocolate, malts, yeast, really a solid offering. I also liked teh bottle cap with the broken heart. Nice stuff and a shame I can't drink this on tap in Denver though I should just be happy to see any Russian River at all.

Tried this one at the source. Pours brown pour with ruby edges and an off white to khaki creamy head on top. Low aromatics with some dark malts, a little roast, some yeast, chocolate, dark fruit. Very smooth velvety mouthfeel with low carbonation. Flavor is chocolate covered raisins, some yeast spice, very smooth, lightly sweet, no bitter. Pretty solid brew, and seems very similar to Salvation to me.
