Pretty dark brown pour with creamy tan head. Nice biscuit and toast almost burntness with citrus hoppiness on the nose. Flavor is more up front hop citrus sweetness and bite but finishes distinctively earthy, leather, resinously bitter. Really solid black ipa.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours out almost black with a 2-finger head. Aroma is of light roast, caramel, some chocolate and light earthy hops. Taste is better than aroma, nice deep roasty notes, light chocolat, with a solid citrusy hop bitterness going on throughout. Well done.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Batch Number 1) Per the label, a Baltic IPA. This starts with a nice blend of roasted notes and hop notes. Pours a clear, dark, ruby red, with a huge tan head. This is one tasty beer, full roasted notes with a long lingering finish. The hops are not as predominant as I expected, just making a token experience. Thereís a slick mouthfeel, and the alcohol is really well hidden. I will definitely be picking up more of this beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown with a dark brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of roasted malt with a nice green hop note and a bit of grass. Flavor has roasted malts throughout with a bit of bitter chocolate and is backed by a nice fresh grass/pine hop note.
