Very good beer! Poured at a good temperature with a nice, fluffy, foamy, tan head that slowly settled down and some lace. Color is a clear garnet. Aroma is hop, malt, roast, fruit. Flavor’s like nose; fairly dry, bitter and carbonic tang up front, with the bit of malt/fruity sweet in back. Body and carbonation good, although there’s a little astringency in the finish. Also the finish is quite long, boozy, and resinous.
Bottle. I can smell the pine as soon as I open it. Pretty much black color, tan head with good retention and solid lacing. Aroma of pine and burnt dark chocolate. Taste is bittersweet dark milk chocolate. Tasty. Iphonephan (7283) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - NOV 12, 2015
From a 22 oz bottle shared at home. Pours a dark cola with a tan head. Toasted nose. Flavors of caramel and orange. Smooth and rich. BVery (11361) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - NOV 8, 2015
Tap at Culmination. Very dark opaque pour with a clingy beige head. Creamy. Mild roast. Mild citrus. Quite good! Steverus0 (332) - Shreveport, Louisiana, USA - OCT 13, 2015
Pours a lovely black with toffee head.
Noticeable caramel malts with slight chocolate, but lots of hops coming forward.
Rich mouthfeel with slight malted sweetness paired with strong hoppy bitters.
A really solid and pleasant brew with plenty of interesting quirks that could keep me coming back.

Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown body under a small fizzy light brown head. The nose is balanced between chocolate, roast, citrusy hops, and dark caramel. The flavor leans towards the Porter qualities I’d say, but there’s still plenty of juicy citrusy hop though. Lingering chocolate, coffee, and roast on the finish. Medium bodied with a slight cling on the back end. Soft fizzy carbonation level. Decent beer, but not an all-star in the style.

Bomber. Rich black color, medium head, light lacing. Nice strong aroma. Sits heavy on the tongue, moderately sweet, roasted taste, some toffee. Strong aftertaste, quite bitter. Very nice overall. AndyW68 (1602) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 28, 2014
Deep dark brown pour with nice tan head. Aroma is woody, malty, and a little vanilla. Taste adds some bitter. Good beer.resin, swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUL 14, 2014
