On tap at Darby’s. Pours a slightly hazy amber with little to no cap. A swirl takes care of that, and leaves a sticky lace. Aroma of caramel, nuts, a touch of wood smoke, slight biscuit. Taste is a huge punch of bitterness, with a subdued sweetness. Medium-high carbonation. Long dry finish.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Liter fliptop from Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours dark translucent copper with a rather yellowish head. Aroma is malty in a mildly roasted way. Not getting a lot of understandable hop aroma. Med body at least. Roasty malt. Hop seems more fruity than anything else. But it’s not light fresh fruit. This is fairly bitter ale. Seems to fit the style. Nice drink.
