On tap at Coffee District. Served in a pint.

Appearance - Deep brown with an ample off white head. Very dark for an amber. Nice surface foam and thick lacing.

Smell - Dark caramel malts. Slight citrus. Malt is the strongest, but the hops brighten the aroma a bit.

Taste - Citrus hop is more prominent. Citrus hop. Blends into a hefty malt backbone. Deep caramel and even some chocolate. Slightly grassy hop flavor persists a little unpleasantly into the finish.

Mouthfeel - No bitterness really. Heavy for a brown. Sharp lingering finish.

Overall - No emphasis to it. It's not really hoppy. It's more malty than anything else.
