Whoa, now. Naming a beer "Chronic" around here is like, uh, naming a beer in Texas "Troy Aikman." And let me tell you, my peeps, this beer is not "chronic." Hell, this dang sucker isn't even bubble kush! It's more like Egyptian Tumble Weed. It's not sticky, it's not bubonic... Just no good, my children. No good at all.

Pours a finger and a half of head on a clear dark straw body.
The aroma is caramel and grains, wet hay.
The taste is caramel and malty with a mild bitterness.
The texture is thicker.
I enjoyed the malty body and flavor.
