This probably one of my favorites from them. Nice mix of citrus hops and cocoa and coffee. There is still something missing from their beers that i cant put my finger on.

Beer with amazing aroma and perfect appearance. I was expecting a bigger mouth feel and bitter kick, which didn’t happen.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Solid black with an inch of pillowy foam. Aroma is toast, grapefruit, pine. Huge progression of flavours as you take a drink. Starts with a fragrant, zesty hop with citrus, pine. Bitterness begins. Opens up with more grain - toast, and a well...rye flavour. Then as it warms up and you finish a sip, it sweetens out a bit, leaving a long, long roasty finish. I usually glaze over the palate section of these ratings, but man does this have a nice mouthfeel.

It pours an opaque black with a creamy khaki colored head and possesses notes of dark roasted malts, citrus hops, coffee, a decent woody smokiness and a touch of Rye. This is a nice dark roasty brew with a hint of Rye, a somewhat Hoppy backbone, a smooth drinkability and a slight alcohol warming at the end. Needless to say it is delicious...
