A: Pours a dark amber with a good sized, dense and fizzy tan head. Great head retention and lots of fluffy lacing on the glass.
S: Malty, full of stale bread. A little caramel. Some herbal hops floating around.
T: Lots of medicinal, herbal hops up front mixing with a little caramel. Grainy, stale dark bread in the middle with a bit of nuttiness. A flourish of bitterness and more herbal hops in the finish with another brief hint of that caramel and nuts. Lingering drying resinous hops between sips.
M: Medium bodied, drying on the back end.
O: On the hoppy/bitter side for an ESB, definitely "americanized". Pretty plain and simple - largely unspectacular. Drying bitterness actually detracts here from the drinkability of a normal ESB it seems. Pretty decent regardless.

Brownish amber in the glass. Plenty of coarse foam. Really pleasant nose of roasted grain and fragrant hops. Quite light bodied with a sudsy mouthfeel.
Pronounced nutty flavor is the best feature at the first sips. It is soon submerged in the bitterness. Thin and sharp, followed by a long bitter aftertaste. It almost tastes like some old cinnamon spice is in the mix, making for a dirty taste in the back of the throat. Still, if you like a more bitter ESB, this one may be appealing.
From the 12 oz bottle bought at Grapevine Liquor in Denver.
