Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured black with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted earthy hop with a small alcohol aroma. Medium body with a dry slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy dark bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is a good complex beer.

This beer pours a dark brown color with a tinge of red around the edges, and a medium foamy tan head that diminishes gradually. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, pine and hops. Medium-bodied with flavors of roast malt, resiny hops and coffee. The finish is roasty coffee and malt up front with a lingering piney hops aftertaste.

"eh. this one had promise, though at $8-9 bucks a pop, it’s overpriced. nice smell and look. smooth too. but the combo of spicy floral hops and dark fruit malts just doesn’t quite work for me in this one. an ok beer at a premium. "
