4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nearly opaque deep red brown with short but dense tan head. Chocolate, pine, orange, and a little caramel in aroma. Oily start with low carbonation - moderate finish that lightly bitters. Toasty malts in taste to go with chocolate - some hop bittering on end. This is really nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cascadian dark ale from Utah. Chocolate and pine resin in the nose. Roasty and hoppy. Was a little harsh at fridge temperature, but it definitely improves with a little warming- the caramel flavours really come through, smoothing out the entire flavour profile. Nice one - would have again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Pours black with thick dark tan head. Aroma is rich and roasty. Lacing. Liquorish and alcohol. Could use a bit more body instead of alcohol burn.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: fruity, roasted, slight chocolate notes.
Appearance: deep Amber color; brown head.
Taste: malt, burnt coffee, bitter, first drink was hoppy with burnt flavors; finish was bitter with coffee and cocoa notes.
Palate: smooth, silky, but light.
Overall: good effort; like the beer. RateBeer member Buukwurm said it well, “This beer really shines if allowed to warm moderately before drinking”. #respectbeerbrethern

Charcoal, burnt hops, and water. It's not that this is a bad beer, it's just not the style I like. I hardly buy any IPAs anymore because they're just overly bitter.

This IPA poured a deep Amber colour with a rocky brown head. Scents include roasted malts and grass. First swig was quite hoppy with lots of delicious burnt flavours. Finish was bitter with delicious coffee and cocoa flavours lingering.
