A: Dr. pepper color from the can is black in the vessel with little to no head. Some agitation formed a spongy, khaki head that was short lived.

S: The aroma was boozy scotch-pine moderate in strength.

T: The flavor was oily coffee roast, citrus and pine. Some boozy scotch alcohol. Think scotch and cold coffee. Decent level of bitterness, oily hops with a wet smooth roast kiss on the finish. If I didn’t know better this tastes almost bal-aged.

M: oily coffee roast, malty body with some sotchy booziness lingering about. Good carbonation detection.

O: Overall the alcohol seems to both contribute some uniqueness while distracts at times. Strong scotch alcohol notes, good level of bitterness and a wet, oily coffee roast backing makes for a good pairing. Big alcohol flavor though may limit drinkability taking a back seat for multiples.
