Smells of hops and peat. Pours dark red/brown with a light head. Tastes very different than the smell, almost took me aback. Bitter coffee, mild hops, very pleasant aftertaste. The smell and the taste go along well together. It doesn’t stand out in any real way but is just an all together well rounded beer that is not too dense but with a full flavor and scent that I think I’ll keep around for friends to enjoy.

Bottle shared at the Foothills bottle share... thanks for setting it up, Mike! Nice balance in this one. Moderate chocolate sweetness with the right amount of pine sting. Really drinkable.

Davros (1806) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 10, 2013
Pours black with a large tan head. Lots of roasty malt as a flavour along with menthol, pine and smoke. Interesting. Flavours include coffee grounds, roasted malt, caramel, piny hops, spicy notes. Finishes with a bold bitterness with both piny and roasty components. Carbonation is just a little high.

chuckstout (232) - Washington, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Citrus, floral and bread aromas. Pours a near black with a off white head. Light mouthfeel good bitterness some dry roast and resin decent ipa, but not a CDA they should have stuck with calling it a black ipa. False marketing.

hawthorne00 (2251) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 13, 2013
Bottle, 10C. Dark red brown with a beige head that fades. Floral grapefruit and lemon aroma with some coffee and licorice. Very light-bodied, has that lack of presence/ weediness that sometimes turns up in organic beers. A little mocha, licorice, plenty of citrus flavours, pine. Finish is dry and fairly bitter.
