Bottle from Market of Choice, Eugene. Pours very dark. Aroma is sweet and boozy, lots of roastiness, chocolate. Mouthfeel is surprisingly lively, finish is slightly grassy, Centennial hops are saying hello. Very, very nice overall. Like a IPA had a baby with a barrel-aged stout. Yum!

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500mL from Grassroots in Jax, FL. Pours a clear, deep maroon. Larger mocha foam. Rockier head. Good retention. Webby lacing. Nose is fruity- jammy blackberry, raspberry jam on toast. Taste is pretty thin and ashy, so much different than their ruggporter. Metallic, ashy, dirty. No body. Tea heavy. WTF? Disappointing.
