Draft sample. Poured clear black color with an average frothy light brown head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted and citrus hop aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Moderate to heavy toasted bitter flavor with a moderate to heavy bitter finish of medium to long duration. Very good brew that I would recommend to a freind.

Draft to taster at Listermann’s. Looks good; cola with off-white lacing. Smells and tastes solid; hoppy and malty. Solid on the palate. Enjoyable.
