5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
16 oz can from New Seasons Market in Hillsboro, OR. Looks thick and syrupy. Initial nose is roasty and sweet. Creamy and velvety smooth mouthfeel, with gentle carbonation. Roasted grains give lots of depth and flavor, with little astringency. Aroma has hints of chocolate, leather, and hazelnuts. Very strong and malty, but not too boozy. Great subtle bitter finish that perfectly balances out the sweetness and lasts long into the aftertaste. An all-time favorite!

The can is funny but thatís pretty much where my fondness ends. Itís heavily overcarbonated and despite my best efforts filled the glass with foam. Flavors are leather, cough drops, woody, licorice. Alcohol-heavy almost to the point of medicinal. Canít say Iíll seek it out.
