4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy finely sized light brown colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque black brown colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was black malt and malty. The smooth mouth feel was tingly at the start with a mediumly tingly finish with a bitter dark malt aftertaste. The yummy flavor contained notes of black malt roasted malt wood mild hops burnt malt and breads. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Black pour, outlined with some dark brown. A tan head settles quickly to a thin layer. Modest lacing on the glass. Aroma of sticky pungent hops, dank, full of hemp oil & resin. Some sharp ashy roast in the back; bitter citrus, heavy herbaceous notes. Flavor is loaded with hops as well, kind of wet & spicy, but still carrying through with tons of oily, dank resins. Getting more notes of white pepper, grapefruit pith, ashy leaves, burnt roasted malt, & charcoal. Burnt. Hoppy. Oily. Finish is reminiscent of dry, over-toasted rye bread. Not bad, perhaps just a little overboard in terms of perceivable bitterness.
