on tap at the Brewery Black pour with a minimal head. Aroma is light, dark malt, touches of roast and some pine resin. Mouthfeel is tingly, carbonated, Flavor is dark roasted malt, some chocolate, pine resin bitterness melds with the light roast. Flavors are balanced but a bit muted, making for a smooth, easy drinking experience, but at the cost of boldness of flavor. Still rather good.

Draft at the brew pub. Snifter showed a dark black color with very tiny off white head. Not much lace at all. Pleasant on the nose with citrus hops and caramel malt. Overall taste is a nice thick malt characteristic with medium carbonation that leaves a nice lively tingle on your palate. Pine resin and light citrus for hops with the blend of malt; make this enjoyable. Well balanced. Not a whole lot of bitterness until it is nearly at room temperature. Subdued until the end of the glass. It is still another fine brew from the brew master and his apprentice. Well worth a try!

Black pour with a one finer tan head. Lots of floral and citrus oriented hop notes in the nose, with the malt character being primarily sweet caramel and roasted barley. Tons of citrus and resin hops in the flavor, culminating with spicy floral notes and a strong roasted barley backbone. Medium palate with a medium body and clean finish.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2011 Pours deep mahogany into a Sam glass. Nice mocha head with good retention recedes leaving spider lacing to mottle surface and hug rim. Dark, thick sweet roasted caramel, prunes and raisins upfront turning to a lasting smooth bitter chocolate finish. Tastes like more like an DBIPA.
