Brownish red with no head, just a thin, tan ring.

Peppery, malty aromas, with a steady stream of smokiness.

Not spicy at all. Some roasted, smoked malts, with a floral taste in there coming from who knows where.

Numb Swagger has a Porter-like start, and a Lager finish. I went into this expecting to have my head blown off but was pleasantly surprised. It's a nice crisp spice, well balanced, providing pepper flavor without much heat.
