On draft at the Bear Republic beer pub in Healdsburg, CA this copper colored pour had a light tan head and moderate lacing rings. Nose is solid aroma of caramel and chocolate. Very smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Flavor is tends toward caramel tastes with a little molasses. Dry bitter finish. Solid beer and remarkably easy drinking.

This isn’t dark so it couldn’t be the big bear dark ale. Some marijuana skunk that’s actually very pleasant, creamy big and fat, God bless Bear Republic! This is another big BR monster. Some roasty notes. Delicious.
