2 mos old (but good for another 4 years!). Pours a deep, deep red with a creamy big head. Smells of malts with an edge of pine hops. Taste is roasted dark chocolate with full body. As the bitterness from the chocolate dissipates the hops come out. Really interesting and really complex. Excellent quality and very unique.

Pours a dark brown with a fluffy, billowing light tan head. Nose is pretty strong coffee, milk chocolate, but also some fragrant orangy, piney, zesty hops, a little tropical. Flavor is lots of dark roasted malt, coffee, a little char, a little molasses, pine needles, grapefruit zest, pineapple. Nice long bitter finish. Bitterness is high but not over the top.Medium to heavy body, quite full mouthfeel. Great balance, great flavor. Beautiful beer.
