Look - DARK DARK brown with almost zero carbonation or foam. Like deep woody brown prune juice.
Smell - woody and sour.
Feel - soft mouthfeel like all of the HoTD beers. I am guessing at the brewhouse they use a nitrous mixture.
Taste - Mysteriously tart and smokey. A subtle but strong sourness followed by robust aged wood flavors. Incredibly well balanced and intriguing like no beer I've ever had before.

Flat, baby Cherry Rye. Thinner and less sweet but outstanding.
