4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft at the Livermore Saloon. It pours a nice mahogany color with a tan head. The aroma is nice and chocolaty with some distinct floral, lime and eucalyptus hoppiness. Very interesting. The flavor is dry dark chocolate with good floral and piney hops. Very rich chocolate and a little caramel come in late before a fresh potent hoppy finish. It has a full, silky mouthfeel. Great beer that I will seek out again.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle - Leafy pine aroma, almost minty, dark roasted malts and very herbal. Almost jet mahogany with a nice creamy brown head. Coffee, roasted malts and a nice finish where the hops finally make their presence known. Finish is very long. This would be a home run if there was more of a hop presence in the taste, but it is still a very good beer.

500ml bottle pours black in color with a 2 finger light beige head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is lemon and grapefruit citrus with a caramel malty sweetness. Taste is a caramel and chocolate malty sweetness with a definitive grapefruit bitterness and some funky tropical fruity sweetness. A very well done brew that is worth trying again and again.
