12oz bottle: Aroma is malty with a floral hop whiff. A great smooth choco-coffee flavor with a fruit hop bitterness. A medium body and velvet mouthfeel coupled with creaminess make this highly drinkable. A small smoky element comes out toward the end. Excellent.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a dark cherrywood color with beige head. The aroma is malty and resiny, with a hint of coffee and oak. The flavor comes off a little sweet at first, but gets ashy pretty fast. Some roastiness finds its way in there, too, and the hops make themselves known in the finish. Not bad.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours almost opaque (the deepest ruby-brown), with a chocolatey floral bouquet. The head diminished quickly, but left a very nice ring lace spiderwebbing the glass. Richly definitive bitter-smoky roasted notes, leaving a perky bitter-coffee finish. Feels comfortable, rich and smooth within the mouth, and would welcome another if so desired.
