Almost perfect in nature, I have enjoyed this beer both on tap and in the can since its conception. Maybe my favorite Upslope brew, I can never get enough Brown.

A: Dark and brown.

S: Brown sugar and malty sweetness.

T: Sweetness, brown sugar, malty, and hoppy bliss.

M: A bold, brown sugar and hop oriented sweet pleasure.

O: Could almost be confused with a delicious dessert. This beer is a keeper.

The last of my haul from pokesbeerdude in the Thrice as Nice CANs BIF. Thanks, dude!

From the CAN: "Hand-Crafted Beer"; "Roasted, Malty, Aromatic"; "Ingredients Snowmelt Malt English Hops American Yeast Brown Sugar"; "Specs Hand-Crafted Aluminum Can Portable Recyclable Good".

Man, but the Crack & Glug was phenomenal resulting in two fingers of light-tan head with good retention. Color was a deep dark-brown with ruby highlights. Nose smelled of evergreen and cocoa and I may have just been inspired for some hot chocolate this winter. I used to love peppermint schnapps in my hot chocolate and I have not done that in years. Mouthfeel was thick and viscous and I'll be damned if that taste was not just like the cocoa I mentioned a moment ago! Minty chocolate. This must be a panty peeler of some stripe, I would imagine. Finish was literally breathtaking with its intense mintiness up front, followed by a soothing wash of chocolate. How many of these do I have left?
