Tried this one the other day while at the brewery. Has a great hop aroma, followed by a smooth chocolaty scent. Very pleasant hoppy flavor, full bodied. Would drink more.

Clear black with a light khaki head and good lacing. Complex aroma full of pineapple and grapefruit/orange zest, with an earthy roasty dark sweetness. Flavor is mostly roasty dark malts with a finish of citric bitterness and lingering roasty caramel. Not bad, just a little uncomplex.
