I tasted this beer from the bottle on 11/25/13. The bottle was refrigerated cool. The beer pours easy, and resulted in a very slight, light yellow head. The beer is a clear dark amber color. Has a malt and gran aroma with hints of caramel. The taste is slightly sweet with the malt and caramel, with a nutty and cereal finish. I really enjoyed it!

Clear amber copper with a thin foamy light beige head. The smell is rich with a sweet caramel nose and a grainy chewy cereal tone behind it. The flavor unfortunately has this semi-boozy cough medicine tone running through it that I’m not a fan of. There is a nice balanced earthy sweet chewy pale cereal maltiness and a touch of toast, but that medicine tone..ouch.

On tap at the Denver location. Pour is clear dark crimson with a frothy cream head and good lacing. Caramelly, toffee, roasty, earthy, dark fruity, light cocoa, raisiny, and figgy aroma. Taste is dark fruity, licorice, light alcohol, brown sugar, caramel, and earthy. Slick mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Not bad and it will get you high boost.
