3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle courtesy of _angst_ thanks Alex! Pours nearly black with a hint of translucence. Off-white head that lingers before settling to a cap, then breaking into spotty lacing. Aromas of pine, earth, fresh cut grass, moving into grapefruit and lemon peel. Nice. Taste follows the nose with a clump of earthy bitterness added to the permeating roasted note. Floral notes emerge to greet a dry finish with a dose lemon/grapefruit. Solid!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours nice dark brown. Toasted brown-beige head. Nice lacings. Aroma is fruity, bit of fresh hops there. Taste is surprisingly hoppy, not only hop bitterness but also bitterness from the roast. Fruits and malt sweetness also there. Dry still. Very good and drinkable clean BIPA.

Dark brown color. Big roasted mouth with big hoppiness, but the nose is very subdued. Excellent mouthfeel. Nice big long roasty finish. Starts boring but finishes like a party.
