Bottle; Love the dark color, but the taste doesn’t match the rich dark look. After taste is flat. Head disappeared too quickly.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle poured into a plastic cup. The aroma is quite damp with notes of caramel, fig, and a distinct dirt / earthiness to it. There’s chocolate lingering as a secondary aroma with some grains late. About midway through the glass a distinct aroma that I could only relate to a "wet dog smell" came through. It poured a dark mahogany color with a medium tan ring that had a soapy quality to it with a light, dusty surface layer. A light lacing is left on the cup. The taste is a medium bitter and light sweet. Creamy carbonation give the beer a smooth texture with it’s medium-light body. The flavors are mostly fig, toast, and caramel with a burnt and sugary note in there at the finish. It’s kinda woody, too. The aftertaste is a syrupy and cloying taste which turns to burnt coffee late.

Yes! I love a surprise. Bottle at Hickory Tavern. Pours brown/black with tan foamy head. Aroma is chocolate, caramel, toasted marshmallow. Taste combines those with some good Willamette hops...so you get sweeter and savory notes. A good "deep" brown with layers of flavor.
