Pours a deep brownish black color with a thick foamy head. Flavor is roasted malts, toffee, caramelized sugars. Hops are prominent in the finish along with an alcohol warmth. Interesting style.

Draft at Clybourn. Kind of shocked that GI made one, in all honesty. But, it was pretty damn good. Pours an obvious black with pale tan head. Nose is full of resin and pine, some nice tropical fruit notes as well. Very much about the hops. On taste, there is a light caramel note and the bitterness is quite restrained. Very refined take on the style, which makes sense. I don’t think I’ve every had an over the top bitter beer from GI and this is no exception. Well thought out and perfectly executed. Very nice.
