330mL. Poured a deep black to near ink with a thinner, tan, coffee head. Nose is savory, salty, black olive, fatty meat. Taste is dirty, bitter, ashy chalky, tea astringent. Lighter mouthfeel. It sounds bad, but I actually enjoyed this one. Very evident hoppy bitterness, earthy, pretty clean. No olive, brine, or saltiness.
