SAN FRAN: hopwater distribution...pours dark as night in a dimly lit place. Frothy head is caramel in color, stays. Aroma is of Swiss miss combined with light espresso. Enticing you to drink. First sip surprisingly smooth and light, but flavor lingers. Kind of bubbly like a porter, not a smooth stout. A very good creation.

Lagers are not generally my go to. I am obsessed with this beer. Basically the law of diminishing returns, doesnt apply to this beer. Every sip is as fantastic as the first. I get hints of a sweet creamy peanut butter, mixed with chocolate.

On tap, Hopmonk Super coffee smell, dark, a bit mysterious...well, maybe not so dramatic. A beer for slow drinking and reflection.
