Consumed December 25th, 2013 at some generic eatery in Charlotte Douglas International Airport.

Beer is copper colored (duh) and clear. The head was less than one head tall, off-white, and quickly settled down into what looked like a culture in a petri dish.

Smoke caramel aroma with some nuttiness.

Flavor is more of the same: strong, nutty flavor with nice caramel base. Smooth, flavorful and good to drink. Pretty remarkable bitterness on the finish, not in the amount but in the assertiveness.

Some carbonation tingle, slightly thicker and creamier than expected.

This beer is a pleasant surprise and I'd be happy to drink this one again.
