On tap at Fat Bottom, pours black withba small light brown head. Aroma is odd, with a sort of root beer scent to this, with subdued roasted malt and hops. Flavour is similar, with medium roasted malt, light hops and root beer. Not sure how they achieved this root beer quality incidentally. It’s decent, but seems a bit off the mark.

Sampled at the brewery. It poured a brown color with a tan head. The aroma was of roasted malts and resiny hops. The taste was similar to the aroma with more roasted malts, some coffee a touch of perfume and some hoppiness. Good stuff. shrubber85 (11706) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAY 8, 2016
Draft. Chocolate malt and grapefruit peel aroma. Chestnut brown with moderate head. Mildly sweet chocolate malt and moderately bitter pine/grapefruit peel flavor. Okay. bytemesis (9502) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - OCT 20, 2015
Tap. Pours deep red mahogany, medium creamy tan head, huge staying power, great lacing. Aroma is roasty, a hint of chicory, pine, astray, touch of rubber. Flavor follows, light plus sweet and bitter, more roasty than IPA. Bitterness without flavor character, which is a bummer. Medium body, great mouthfeel.

Pint on tap. Opaque with a lasting creamy film on top. Nose is mild mocha with a hint of citrus zest. Tastes of semi-sweet chocolate, grapefruit, resiny herb, caramel and some coffee on the finish. Almost seems like some wheat in there too. Medium body has medium-high carbonation and an intriguing balance.
