Pours a deep reddish brown on nitro tap with thick tan head that dissipates slowly to leave good lace. Aroma and taste of sweet caramel and bready malt, nutty notes, and earthy ending. This is a really nice balanced amber with great mouth and finish from the nitro.

Pours a finger and half of head on a dark straw body.
The aroma is sharp citrus and pine.
The taste has a nice moderate pine and citrus bitterness, then mellows to a mild sweet finish.
The texture is crisp.
It smells great and tastes good.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Deschutes scores again! Pour is a big red brown in color, big thick head that retains and leaves a wonderful thick lacing throughout the beer. Mouthfeel is nice, slow carbonation, absolutely heavenly when it’s cool. Smell is creamed corn, smoke, bitter hops, a touch of caramel and toffee. Taste follows, the burnt caramel taste is a long bitter taste, drying to the max. This beer kicked my ass.
