Medium to dark brown pour with a 1 finger, creamy, off white head that has decent retention and leaves decent lacing. Nutty, herbal, pine and light citrus aroma. Flavor is oily nutty sweetness up front, earthy wood, cereal, dark caramel, spice and hints of pine and herbal hops and roast to the finish. Medium body, with a sticky, but slick feel and light carbonation. Not bad, but it’s a little boozy (especially for 5.15%ABV and bland other than a vague nuttiness, I really had to search for other tasting notes. Still, I could knock back a couple without complaining.
Can that Zac bought for the Purgatory condo. Relatively light brown color with no real head but lots of bubbles. Light dusty malty aroma. Flavor is lightly bitter malt with a hint of coffee. Meh. ZacM612 (869) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - AUG 1, 2017
