12 fl oz bottle via my bro, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.
App.: Clear copper with a nice light tan foam.

Palate: Medium body, moderate effervescence.
Flav.: Much more stark than the nose, quite resinous, a bit floral, fairly earthy, not nearly as friendly, dry, earthy malts, a little burnt sugar, quite different from nose; dry with strong bitterness and a stark, earthy, stern finish.
Holy bipolar brew, Batman!
