Pours black with little tan head. A balanced aroma of hops, malts, and cocoa. A great taste of chocolate, coffee, hops, and pines. Not an overwhelming aftertaste - very balance and refreshing.

Keg @ CovenHoven. Deep brown pour with a small head. Brown bread, pretty nutty. Fresh-cut pine. Christmas tree. Some coffee and trail mix flavor. Finishes with more pine. Roast malt. Sort of a lightweight body. Soft carbonation. OK.

Growler shared in NYC - thanks to drsandman! Pours deep brown with a frothy beige head. Nice aroma, some good roast, grapefruit, burnt grass, dry cocoa. Medium sweet flavor with mild alcohol, ashy roast, baking cocoa, charred pine, chalk. Medium bodied, a little chewy, with average carbonation. Sturdy bitter roast finish, plenty of scorched earth, baking cocoa, citrus pith. Good stuff.

Draught @ Other Half Brewing, Brooklyn
Pours pitch black with a thick head. Aroma of roasty malts, fruits, hints of licorice, coffee and hops. Taste is wet hoppy, roasty and salty with hints of licorice, coffee and dark chocolate. Finish is crisp, bitter and roasty with some wet hoppiness. Okay, a bit unbalanced.
