Great roasty, malty, mochafied, chocolatey taste when it hits the mouth. I can kinda pick up the rye on the aftertaste, but probably only because I read the description stating that it was in there. I can see where some others liken it more to a nut brown ale, reminiscent of Goose Island perhaps. Good aroma and dark in color, just like I like ’em. The carbonation seems to be on the brink of perfection. This bowl o’ porridge is juuuuuuust right. The more I drink it, the more I like it. These Flat Earth cats know how to craft a fine brew. I give it a 4.5 only because perfection is the end of progression.
I used to be a typical Bud/Busch/Michelob guy. Whatever's cold, right?! (I grew up in a town of 690) However, around my final year of college, I developed tastebuds and soon began to whistle a different tune. My fridge now usually contains about 5-7 different beers at any given time, and I'll be dipped in dog doo if you can find a domestic light beer in there. My tastes are more inclined to the dark side, with Stouts and Black Lagers being my favorites, generally speaking, though I have developed a love for IPAs as well. View all posts by Joe Lunchpail
