Pours a dark black with a very foamy, long-lasting tan head. Has an aroma of pine and roasted malts. Flavor is roasted malts with some pine and bitterness. Flavors are blended together perfectly. Delicious.

Bottled. Wow that is an IPA that gets you. The beer is aggressively hopped, aggressively bitter, and biting. After taste is pleasant. One to savor slowly.

bottle @ Keg Liquors / Clarksville IN --- Opaque black, brown head that slowly drops from 4" to a heavy cover, curtains of lace. Taste is roasted malt, light smoke, floral hops, medium fizz, and a long hard smoked hop finish. A full-bodied brew that becomes more hop-harsh as it moves through a finish that finally is all smoke. Really well done, but not for me.

Mainuh_man (291) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 1, 2016
12 Oz bottle. Pours black with a huge light brown head that lingers leaving huge lacing. Aroma is fantastic; smokey, dank, floral hops. Flavor is medium sweet going immediately to lots of piney hops, finishing with ample piney and and citrusy hops with a bit of roast. Fill body with a creamy mouthfeel and average carbonation. Overall, love the aroma, flavor kind of doesnt live up to it. Still, delicious.

rosenbergh (11475) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 21, 2016
12 oz bottle. Bottled Jul/11/16. (Siciliano's) Grand Rapids, MI. Dark reddish brown color with a small tan head. Mild sweetish licorice, mild toasted malt, mild hops and some dryness in the aroma. The flavor is lactic sweetness, licorice, roasted malt, hops, mild bitterness and some medical notes. Pretty decent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Impressive! Beautiful pour...black as coal with a dark tan head that lingers and laces through the entire glass. I could tell from the aroma that I was in for a surprise. I will be drinking more of this. The flavor is excellent.

ARH (1124) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 20, 2016
On tap, poured into a tulip. The aroma is grape jolly rancher and mild toast. The grape jolly rancher, turns to grape jelly / grape filling and dark chocolate. The beer pours a dark stout look with a filmy, sudsy, tan head that has mild lace and retention. The taste is a medium high bittersweet with slightly more bitter. The texture is oily and smooth with a fuzzy carbonation and medium full body. The flavor is at first, a grape jelly and burnt bread combination with a finish of jolly ranchers and roasted chocolate, as well as a secondary notes of molasses, toasted bread, fig, and bitter herb. The aftertaste is dry, with mild flavors of burnt toast and grape candy.

On tap at Howells & Hood. Almost black with a tan head. Aroma of hops, dark chocolate, some licorice and grapefruit. Similar taste. Nicely balanced and with a bitter finish. A tasty one.
