Pours a hazy brown with swirling particulates & faint ruby tones when held against the light. The pour produces barely a fingerof frothy, beige, shortlived head that leaves a slim ring of pasty, patchy lacing. Aroma is dark malt, fresh cut pumpernickel, toffee, thin chocolate & roasted nuts. Taste is full & robust: fronted by toast, cocoa, roast & nuts with brown sugar & raisins at the mid-sip, finishing caramel, earthy, floral & bitter with slight burnt hint. Aftertaste is bitter cocoa, burnt bread & caramel. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation, smooth creamy & think chewy with a pleasant spice bite.

I tried the high wire bed or nails at Capt'n Woodys on Hilton Head Island. It poured a clear mahogany with off white that is not leaving any lace. The scent had hints of sweet biscuit. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink.....slightly hoppy and tasty. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it's a decent beer.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a mug at the Dockside in Beaufort, SC. The appearance is a dark brown color with a large tan head. The aroma is full of roasted malts and some hops. the taste is malt driven but has some hop bitterness.
