An OK beer with way too much hops for this style. The hops left a heavy bitterness on the mouth that was not balanced by other elements in the brew. Too many craft brewers are of the "more is more" persuasion when it comes to hops and I hope this trend ends.

A-brown color that looks could and copper when held in the light that has a small tan head.
S- sweet carmel and toffee
T-toffee carmel then you get a bitter warming that fades into a coco aftertaste that quickly turns into a sweet finish
M- low carbonation, thick and smooth
O-this beer was great. It had plenty going on.
