Had it on nitro tap, super fresh.

Appearance: Looked like chocolate milk right out of the tap. Bubbles slowly raised to reveal a clear, very dark amber with a tan head. Left absurd amounts of lacing along the sides of the glass.

Smell: Roasted malts.

Taste: Sweet right off the bat, into a creamy roasted malt backbone, vanilla. A little bitterness starts to peak in at the end as it warms.

Mouthfeel: Like drinking cream-of-beer soup.

Overall: Creamy texture makes it so easy to drink, but still has plenty of roasted malt flavors to keep it interesting.

4.13/5  rDev +12.8%

Appearance: Orange/amber color. Nice head that laced the glass where the head, but did not continue down the glass (4.5/5)

Smell: Malty, nothing really stands out (4/5)

Mouthfeel: smooth, lightly carbonated (4/5)

Taste: Malt tasting for a cream ale. Slight hint of sweetness and a very very low bitterness. Very smooth and easy to drink (4/5)

Overall: good beer. Light, easy to drink, and not too complex (4/5)

16 oz. Can
Canned On: 01/27/17

Poured into a Squatters true pint glass a pretty nice clean/clear dark golden brownish color, pretty nice carbonation, with a really nice thick/creamy two-finger light tan head, which also leaves some very nice creamy sticky lacing behind. The nose is malty, slight hop, caramel, kinda bready. The taste is malty, kinda hoppy, bready, with a good dose of caramel, spicy. Medium body, ABV hidden fairly well. Overall, not that bad.
