On-tap at Crescent City Brewhouse, New Orleans, LA

A: The beer is crystal clear dark mahogany amber in color (brown when viewed from afar). It poured with a finger high beige colored head that settled down, leaving a thin head covering the surface.
S: Moderate aromas of toasted malts and malt extracts are present in the nose.
T: The taste mostly follows the smell and has flavors of malt extracts, although there are just enough noble hops to mask any sweetness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is rather malty, but isn’t heavy on the palate and isn’t sweet. It’s not bad for a hot day in New Orleans.

Serving type: on-tap

Well maybe it was the fact that I could drink this while walking around the French Quarter that makes me give it such a good review. In any event, even in a plastic cup, it looked great with a nice head and good lacing. It smelled great, a nice earthy chocolate aroma. Tasted very good, nice and malty with a rich feeling. Anyway, I like it and had a last drinking it along Bourbon Street.

Pours a deep dark muddy brown with an ample tan head that lingers.

Mild hop punch, slightly medicinal and herbal. Smells of sour yeast and roasted malt.

Taste is roasted malt - chocolate, coffee - with a slight spicy note of rye, a slightly bitter hop herbal hit. This is a solid beer, but nothing stands out.

No head. Descent roasted and yeast flavor. Light body. Low carbonation.

Pours clear, dark brown in color, with minimal head. Taste is coffee, roasted malt, and light chocolate. Sweet, roasty with light body. To me this beer just fell flat. Was expecting more body for the roastiness. For me this is a huge pass.
