Chilled 12 oz. longneck into a shaker pint. Bottling date 8.7.13.

Look- Medium amber with an orange hue. Thick, creamy off-white head. Good retention, very nice lacing.

Smell- Surprisingly herbal, dark rye bread, a little fusel. Nutty, dark fruit.

Taste- Like the nose, very hoppy for an alt. Nonetheless, very tasty and malt-driven. Nutty, full toasty flavor throughout with some golden raisin. Herbal bittering pushes through after the sip, finishing with a dry honeyed biscuit and peppermint-black tea.

Mouthfeel- Smooth, full, almost creamy. Moderate carbonation. Chalky finish, very clean. Trace of booziness, feels fitting.

Overall- Definitely in the sticke category, but more assertive than you'd expect with the hops. Style- meh, but it's pretty darn good. I'd like to see more like this on the Texas market.
