Beer is a dark amber with a creamy, ivory head that lingers. Smell is fresh and yeasty with some sharp piney hoppy notes. Taste has a nice malt backbone and an assertive mixture of caramel and pine and hops. It's complex and very good. The beer is fairly heavily carbonated, which makes it quite drinkable. The carbonation and the hops are a nice counterbalance to the dark malty/caramel stuff that's going on here. All in all, an excellent beer. This strikes me as a darker version of their Spring Peeper. Good stuff.
