My friend brought over a growler of Rejection to share, since I had been without a car and unable to make the pilgrimage up north myself in quite a while.

This pours a cola coffee black with big foamy bubbles, even after a day’s rest.

There’s a lightly roasted character with a floral ester quality from the Belgo-inspired yeasties.
This is surprisingly thin-bodied—delicate?—with the roast and a mellow malt finish.

On tap at Russian River in Santa Rosa. Brown color, dark looking. Aroma was sweet, chocolate, nice. Flavor was quite good, chocolate, malts, yeast, really a solid offering. I also liked teh bottle cap with the broken heart. Nice stuff and a shame I can't drink this on tap in Denver though I should just be happy to see any Russian River at all.
