On tap at brewery. Creamy imperial stout that’s intriguingly hop forward. Ton of pine coming through for me on latest batch. I would have thought I’d be put off but instead I liked it a lot - it was a good earthy hoppiness, piney but not with hop bitterness. 2013 batch, drunk side by side, considerably more mellow, with no pine at all, but more pronounced bitter chocolate. Overall 2014 batch is sweet, spikily complex, chocolate with hint of coffee and that pine.

Growler shared at first sunday. Big toasty malt aromas. Berry and acidic coffee notes. Smooth and coffee dominant. Really nice. ben4321 (6841) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 23, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2015 Cask at Cork City. Dark brown pour with a creamy brown head and heavy lacing. Dark malts, some roast, a bit of nutty type flavoring, spice notes and a bit of booze. Rather dry, fairly heavy malty but not really at all sweet. Long, dry finish. Fairly strong heart. Interesting, strong. j12601 (13304) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAY 8, 2015

Dmac handing off the 32 oz. pill bottle to Willrunforbeer, thanks for the share, nice stout! Pitch black with a slow deducing head. Aroma has a huge roasty character. Flavor is mild roasted coffee, charred malts, mild anise with a bitter coffee/ hops character to help balance the roasted malts. Mouthfeel is nice and full with a dry roasted texture.
