A - Pours a deep brown with a slight tint of amber, really nice finger of light chocolate colored head, retention is ok, a thin layer remains after several minutes, lacing is ok too.

S - Toasted toffee malts, earthy/woody flavors, slightly chocolaty with some earthy hop notes.

T - Roasty bitter malts and earthy (slightly lemony) hops up front, not dry/hoppy bitter at all initially. Sweet toffee and traces of chocolate malts shine through and the finish is a bit citrusy/almost funky (in a very mild way). Aftertaste is that citrusy/slight funk, quite woody, and fairly bitter from earthy hops. Mildly dry (bitter) aftertaste lingers a decent bit

M - Lighter bodied, pretty well carbonated, very drinkable.

O - Tasty, guzzled 4 or 5 sips at once and am enjoying it more. Not amazing, but decent flavor, lots going on, and very drinkable.
