On tap at FFF in a dimpled mug. Pours black with a thin light tan head and little lacing. Aroma is mostly malts. There is also smoke and leather. Taste is awesome. Malty, smokey, a little sweet and a touch of citrus. Thin and easy drinking. Really good.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown with a creamy tan head.
Earthy, lactic, "brown" aroma....
Rich, oddly woody/earthy chocolate malt taste...
It’s just...different...the whole package...
Put me in mind of rich dirt, but in a good way....like the aroma, the flavour is best described as "brown"....

Pour on tap at the brewpub, dark brownish black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of roast, cocoa, some caramel into a bit of yeast, bread, some toast with a touch of grass. Taste was a mix of grass, earth, some yeast into toast, roast, some cocoa, touch of grain, finishing slightly roasted, slightly sweet.

Draft to taster. Looks good; a lightly translucent very dark dull cola with foamy lighter beige head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of dark malt, chocolate, and mild notes of roast and lager yeast. Tastes like it smells with a smooth medium-bodied mouthfeel. A good example of the style.
