Tap. Copper pour with some head that retained a lacing around the glass. Caramel, nuts, spice and some soil. Easy to drink and my favorite first drink at Defiant brewery.

On tap at the Mason Jar, where it was called Defiant Dark Lager. A very drinkable brew, well balanced with some malty sweetness. It went well with a barbeque dinner.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft poured into a weizen glass at Taproom 307 w Andy, Streets, James. Pours a very dark amber with big, frothy white head that leaves stringy, patchy lacing. Smells like wheat and over-the-top yeast. Tastes beady and dry with a very bready, cakey aftertaste. Kind of putrid. I could probably drink it again, but would not order more than one.
