UPDATED: DEC 21, 2008 Pours a very deep mohagany/brown color body with a super sticky off white head. The aroma is very roasty with some really nice hop notes and some earthy tobacco. The flavor is a complex blend of coffee, walnuts, grapefruit, pine needles, mild cigar, and subtle oranges. Very drinkable. A very nice surprise.

Pours a very dark brown, near black. Good deal of lacing.
Grapefruit lemon and grass, followed by roasted malts on the nose. Assertive floral hop flavor with citrus fruits, coffee and roasted malts. Smooth bitter finish. Nice black IPA

Bottle in Brussels. Nice dark body with tan head. Nose is malty, with hops and pines. Spicy flavours. Lots of big malts but also hoppy elements. Really nicely balanced. Interesting one.

On draft. Holy wow. Big aroma of floral and citrus hops, followed by a dark chocolate bomb of a beer. Almost stout-likr in depth if flavor. More raisin and red wine flavor as it warms. An all-timer.

"not a hop bomb as expected. there are a ton of hops, sure, but the high dose of dark malt give it the look and feel of a barleywine or old ale...with the hops of a double ipa. this is a beer i could really get into. smooth, balanced, spicy hops in the bittersweet finish. nice hybrid here. via trade w/ kinger."
