On tap for the 2nd Anniversary event at Tony's Darts Away in Burbank, CA.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small streaks of beer form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt and a huge mix of herbal, floral, and spice aromas. Taste is of dark roasted malt, citrus zest, herbal hops, and a variety of herbal, floral, and spice flavors. There is a mild bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a very interesting blend that actually reminds me very much of Anchor's OSA in the flavors.
