Notes / Commercial Description:
The aroma is of coffee and cocoa, with hints of dark fruit. The flavor is chocolate and some caramel, over a surprisingly light body. Crisp, clean, with abrupt finish leaves you craving another sip in this highly sessionable English style mild.

On-tap at Pig Pounder Brewery, Greensboro, NC

A: The beer is black in color; when held up to a bright light it is very dark brownish red in color. It poured with a short off white head that died down and left some lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of dark malts are present in the nose along with some notes of coffee and hints of nuts.
T: The taste follows the smell, having flavors of dark malts with notes of coffee beans and nuts plus some hints of dark fruits.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very flavorful and its lighter body makes it extremely easy to drink and sessionable.

Serving type: on-tap

Poured on-tap at the brewery and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a crystal clear, ruby-brown coloring with a low profile, creamy, tan head. Nose of roasted nut, subtle toffee, and hints of chocolate. Flavors are more roasted and bitter, with a tangy toffee backbone. Sugary sweet. The body is smooth, but the carbonation adds a nice little edge. Rich and roasted aftertaste on a smooth, slightly sharp finish.

This is the most flavorful session beer I've ever had. Not sure how you packed that much complexity into a beer with an ABV of 3.6. Well done. The color was a soft dark brown with a welcoming nose, and a smooth finish. All of the beers were great, but this is the one I could sit there and drink all night.
