3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub. Served a dark brown color with a good head that fades to some lacing. Aroma of piney hops with some mallt sweetness and bit of fresh grain. Taste starts with a piney nip then some malt sweetness and bit of grain. Nice bitterness and a clean finish. Medium body, crisp and quite flavorful. Nice beer for the style. Quite enjoyable. Worth checking out.

Pours very dark brown with a large head.
Very resinous aroma with a fair bit of piny hops and some confectionery-like fruity notes. Also a nice bit of roast and coffee.
Very similar flavours. Resinous, fruity hops followed by a fair whack of roasted malt, but there’s enough sweet malt underneath to balance things out.
Could use a bit more carbonation.
