Black with a nice tan head that leaves good lacing nice retention... Hoppy but in a mildly medicinal way, roasty, not that appealing in the aroma... Flavor of light vanilla and mild roast... Medium bodied...

Pounder cans from Smith’s and Wegman’s. Poured dark brownish black with off-tan head. Nose was charred black patent malt, cacao, hops, molasses. Tasted malty, with charred roasted notes, backup hops, and that Sixpoint house flavor that does clash a bit with the malt here. OK, not great.

Dark with a small head. Aroma has light roasted malt, some molasses, plenty of citrus hops. Medium bodies. Flavor is packed full of American hops. Background roasted malts. Good brew but would have liked a more powerful malt profile instead of the hops.

Tap: Jet black with a tan head and sticky lacing. Aroma of broccoli when being cooked. It has an interesting zing in the flavor as if the malts are crashing with the hops instead of blending which is ok in this case. It has an intense earthy taste followed by spices like nutmeg.
