"Red malt for subtle sweetness and balance And a very aggressively bitter hop combination. I didn’t particularly care for the overly bitter hop profile, but the brew is still pretty good...just not my thing."

dark brown head. Muted nose, but lots of coffee, dried fruit, lots of roastiness, hazelnuts full thick body in the mouth.
Big bad ass beer with lots of dried fruit in the finish and lots of roastiness. Great.

Dark amber to caramel brown in color... Aroma of sweet citrus hops, grapefruit on the nose... Flavor is dark caramel toffee malts, roasted malt character, light citrus notes, but burnt malts dominate... Not much bitterness on the finish.... Decent, but nothing special

Draft at Monks. Hazy orange brown pour. Burned malt flavors with high hop bitterness. Approximates a black IPA. Lots of citrus pith. Medium body. Not bad but not exciting.
