Bottle. Pours a very dark borwn with dense creamy light tan coloured head. Really nice fresh hop aromas dominated by fresh grapefruit. Flavours show a little roasted grain and coffee bitterness before a super resiny hop finish.The more I drunk the more off putting i found it. Thin to medium mouthfeel. Would have preferred a little more porter type character.

A dark, oozy beer with its creamy, brown head gives off a heap of flavours including coffee, liquorice, sea water, orange peel, resin, grain and dirty socks. The hops are far more prominent in the mouth before giving way to coffee, smoke and cream (squealer from Prince Wine Store).
