Draft at Dexters. Opaque black with a solid beige head. Oily resinous burnt coffee/toffee aroma. More enjoyable than the Farmhouse, a very drinkable BIPA. Steady semi-soapy hops. Clean for the style, medium to full bodied. Middle of the road, enjoyable enough. Well executed, but pretty tame.

Blackish, slight brown. Richmond 16th. Aromas and flavors again a match - a slight, pleasant roasty chocolate note, some citric hops. It isn’t bad at all, just very muted flavors.

It just tastes like a beer that doesn’t know what the heck it is going for, a mess.

Pours black bodied with thick beige soapy head that leaves 3/8 of an inch retained head. Pleasant Cascadian citrus aromas, and inviting. Creamy mouthfeel, spot on the style. good drinkability. Roast, some citrus and decent hop bitterness.Thanks for bringing back Chris.

Sampled at the the Sweet Sixteen Richmond Gathering. Sampled with the other 5 in the series. Again, a little funk on this one, but not a gusher. Dark clear brown pour with ample light tan head. Same base underlying beer, but with a dark spicy quality. Interesting.
