Very good depth, robust flavor, with a more pronounced hoppy flavor. Slight sweet taste, but not overly sweet.

surprisingly better that I was inspecting. Rich malt flavor , but could be stronger on hops.

Very clear, dark amber with a fleeting head but significant lacing. The smell is dominated by caramel from the malt with no noticeable hop aroma. The same goes for the taste - rich malt flavors with minimal bitterness. The feel is quite smooth and the finish very clean. The malt flavor does an excellent job of masking the rather high alcohol content. I dropped 6 bucks on a bomber of this at the brewery and while not terribly disappointed, I probably am one and done with this as there are better choices for less money.

A: The beer is clear dark reddish brown in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high dense beige head that died down, leaving a thin head covering the surface and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of caramel malts are present in the nose along with some notes of citrus and evergreen.
T: The taste has an interesting mix of caramel flavors from the malts and citrusy and woody flavors from the hops. A slight amount of sweetness is contrasted by a light to moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied, a little crisp and slightly smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: Although none of the aromas or flavors seem to stand out in particular, the malts and hops are well balanced and work together. This beer is quite drinkable because the alcohol is well hidden from the taste.
