3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured on draft at the source. Pours a dark brown with a khaki coloured head of foam that dissipates at a moderate rate to leave a thin cap. The aroma is fairly roasty and resinous. Drying on the tongue. Its on the verge of sweetness, but the bitterness just dominates the palate. Seems a bit thin, but that’s really my only complaint. Good overall.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
ark pour with a thick long lasting tan head. Aroma is heavy on the coffee side but, yields some notes of citrus, caramel, and chocolate. Lots of residual bitterness and borders on the astringent side.

Opaque black, light brown head, streaks of lace, all disappear quickly. Taste opens with light malt, hops begin moving in, and ,in, and in, and in....This is a power hop brew that is definitely for the hopheads.
