Nice stout-like dark ale. Less malty flavors than you'd see a stout, and more hoppy flavors instead. Very robust flavor, with lingering bitterness. Solid!

Pours slightly transparent brown with a thick, snowy off white head. Generous, thick lacing in the glass. Pine resin nose with a hint of grapefruit. Slightly delicate palate with good interplay between bitter hops and light roast. My favorite that I’ve tasted from this brewery.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle. This dark ale has a pleasant if somewhat vague aroma. It pours a cloudy dark brown with a huge tan creamy head. Pour with caution. The taste while far from unique is very pleasing. There is a strong alcohol note. Good drinkability and mouth feel.
