3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz. bottle. Aroma of piney, earthy, lightly fruity hops and dark, roasty, toasty malts, with notes of spruce, faint cocoa and cola. Clear deep, dark brown in color with a very slight head. Flavor profile is nicely balanced with nutty, bittersweet, roasted malts, faint molasses and licorice, piney, floral, earthy hops and a moderately strong dosage of hop spice and bitterness towards the long finish. Full and very lightly warming on the palate, body is just substantial enough. Interesting and tasty rendition.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark reddish-brown with a 2-inch tan head. The initial nose suggests toasted grain, smokiness, and density. Medium full body with rich, smoky notes on the palate. Nice bitter lingering. Belgian lace. The ABV is not noticeable. Modest carbonation. Delicious. Would be excellent with grilled and smoked food. Will seek again.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The aroma of this brew is a combination of roasted malts, caramel malts, and floral hops that hits you in the face, and the appearance has a clear, very dark garnet color with a large, pillowy, off-white head, which is gorgeous. The taste is mildly bitter, mildly umami, and a touch sweet, and the palate fuses a medium body, slick texture, soft carbonation, and a long finish that is merely an extension of the hearty, malty, and bitter taste.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours very dark, almost black. Thin off-white head that lasts the whole beer. No lacing at all. Aroma is dark-roast and sugary malt. Mouthfeel is creamy. A sort of astringent roast flavor. Not much in the way of hop aroma or flavor.

Big hoppy beer with a good balance of roast, not overdone.Well malted for drinkability. Black bodied with some head. Not the best, a little weak on mouthfeel.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
draft, brown pour with a thin tan head. Aroma of dark roasted malts, slight hop. Flavor of slight roasted malt/ coffee, very little hop. Not well balanced, not much of a finsh or bite to it. Overall a decent brew, could use a little tweaking from the brewing.
