Very Good

Notes: Mashed with southern select two row barley from our good friends at Riverbend Malt House of Asheville, North Carolina along with a decidedly delicate blend of the finest caramel and chocolate malts. Fermented cool with our preferred house ale yeast for a touch of residual sweetness and a luxurious mouthfeel. Blended with North Carolina sea salt from the Outter Banks Sea Salt Company for increased quenchability. Brewed to comically celebrate Charles Darwin, the extraordinarily complex and contemplative father of evolution.

Had poured from pint can, bottom stamped “CANNED ON 03292019,” into clear plastic hotel water cup.

FF Forehead’s got the requisite roasted malts of a porter, but also much more, including a deft amount of fruit and cocoa.

A: The beer is essentially jet black in color. It poured with a quarter finger high light tan head that died down leaving a patch of bubbles on the surface and a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of cola are present in the nose along with notes of dark malts.
T: The taste follows the smell and has flavors of cola and dark malts with a bit of roast and light notes of salty caramel towards the finish.
M: It feels just about medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and is a good representation of the style while the salted caramel adds a touch of uniqueness.
