3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Prime 16 - New Haven, CT. Aroma is a green, bristly raw hop resin on the catty side. The palate is a clash of the titans, dark brown malts against a rough, coarse hoppiness. Iím not digging the hop profile and the malt profile gets buried by it. Dry.

bottle. Poured deep brown with a rocky tan head. Aroma of roasted malt packed with hops. Full bodied, creamy mouthfeel with a tart resiny finish. Flavour of caramel malt, nutty with big herbal hops throughout. Never would have the high alcohol content.

Growler gifted from my neighbor who didnít like coffee beers. While not a coffee beer per se, but it was was certainly a flavor note. Resinous hoppy, nutty, earthy, cocoa and coffee.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pretty hoppy with nuttiness bordering on roasted malt. After a few sips this just feels more like a Black IPA, of which Iím not a fan. Just donít typically like the roasty malt with high dosage of bright hops. Itís like brushing your teeth and drinking a glass of orange juice....Just not a good combination.
