Pours a dark brown black from a bottle, khaki colored head with some lacing. Piney aroma disappears into a bitter chocolate flavor with lots of bitterness. Good beer.

Bottle; Pour is murky brown - with a modest, fine bubbled khaki head into this glass - sticky lacing presence - with average retention. The nose is resinous and piney hops, moving to roasty notes and molasses. The flavor profile has a mouthfeel that runs a touch thin - with more piney notes, as well as cocoa / roasty notes in this one. More general bittering notes fading to oblivion for me to a dry finish line- It’s a decent example.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Coffee boozy chocolate on the small. Gave it a five cause it’s actually black. Taste is all over the place chocolate soda to start things off with rich burnt taste followed by rich sweet coffee notes. Really makes you want to sip and not chug to enjoy this ale. Full body reminds me of a stout on the feel. Much more crisp carbonation then your average dark brew. I would have to say this calls somewhere between a black IPA and a stout but all in all nice Delishous brew. Keep them coming two roads.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to secret Santa 2016. Pours a deep brown color with about two fingers of creamy brown head. Heavy sheet lacing. Aroma is roasty, piney, chocolatey… off to a great start. Taste is roasty, bitters, and light cocoa sweetness. Finish is a little dry, some pine. Maybe a little on the thin side, but overall it’s solid.
