3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
10 oz draft at Belmont Station in Portland, Oregon. The pour is a dark black brown with a small khaki head that leaves behind nice lace. The aroma is a soft toasted bread malt, along with pine and grass hops. The taste is a delicate balance between the toasted softly roasted bready malt and the fresh clean pine and grass hops. The palate is medium bodied with active natural carbonation and a cleanly bitter toasted pine finish. Delicious.

Black color. Intense aroma, roasted malts, chocolate, fruity hops. Full bodied, coffee and roasted malt flavor, a bit ashy, with light residual sweetness, followed by extreme resiny hopping. Still some harsh roastiness in the final, but it doesn’t spoil the rest.
