I usually keep my drinking to strictly hazy and sour beers. Can't remember the last time I enjoyed a beer of this SRM. Props to the Ron's for reminding me what beer *can* be. Subtle, but roasty front that gives way to a smooth and almost tropical finish.Earned the Untappd at Home (Level 31) badge! Earned the Black as the Night badge!

Nose has a lovely cocoa powder and espresso quality up front before some pine needles and sweeter stone fruit tones come in. Palate highlights resinous, earthy, and moderately bitter OG hops initially before a hit of tobacco and dark roast coffee.
Medium bodied brew with a great mouthfeel. Roasty, smoked character up front that settles into the dank, yet slightly tropical hop notes as it warms. 1st time having this style and definitely a fan!Earned the Untappd at Home (Level 2) badge!

This is a fun one. Pours surprisingly thick with a beautiful head that hangs out with you for the session. Herbal, floral, fruity nose. Nice hints of roasted malts. Hoppy bitterness on the backend. Great mouthfeel.Earned the Home Brewed Goodness (Level 20) badge!
Surprisingly fruit forward for the style.Coconut notes, a bit of mango and strawberry, plus dankness. Palate leads with the fruit, incorporates light cocoa and roast midway before finishing somewhat resinous and bitter.Modern hopped spin on the style.Earned the Black as the Night (Level 8) badge!
