I don't think Smutty makes a bad beer. I've been brewing for over 15 years and I struggle to produce a beer like this. Nice hop character, great lasting dark (cholocate?) malt flavor. This is top notch stuff...and at 5.7 ABV you can have a couple and enjoy them without walking head first into the TV getting up to take a leak at halftime/end of quarter/end of peroid. If you like flavor and well crafted beer grab some of this and enjoy!

Pours the darkest of blacks. Big pillowy tan head that is sticky and unwavering.

Smells like lots of roasted malts. Hints of coffee, cocoa and musty earthy hops. Nothing overpowering but very good.

Starts light with some brown ale flavors, some piney and earthy hops kick in with a hint of citrus. Good bitterness in the middle but not overpowering. Ends with medium roasted malt flavor with mild coffee and toasted grains. A bit of toffee to go with the grassy hop flavor at the end.

Medium bodied, medium carbonation that carries the bitterness well. Too much flavor for any semblance of alcohol.

A full flavored brew with great balance and taste. I bought a single, but I'd like to get more sometime this week. Good stuff!
