22 oz. bottle via trade. Pours a clear dark brown color with a small beige head. The aroma is a nice blend of hops and malts: roasted malt, cocoa , citrus, and hints of pine resin. The flavor has a dark roasted malt base, with bittersweet chocolate, hints of black coffee and an overall mild sweetness. The hops provide moderate bitterness with citrus and pine standing out. The finishes is dry with more roasted malt. Medium bodied and somewhat smooth mouthfeel.

a bit too strong where they need more flavor. the malts are a strong yet astringent it and the hops are notice yet not anything special for this type of beer. it has a sweet flavor of chocolate malts but the hoppiness brings a great amount of palate fatigue.

The aroma is very toasted and hoppy with coffee, and chocolate. The appearance is dark brown with a tan head. The taste is very near the aroma but with an astringent finish. The palate is smooth. Overall this is pretty good.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a clear dark brown color with a minimal frothy off-white head that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Moderate earthy hop and toasted malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where exceeded.

Almost as dark as a porter with plenty of red highlights. A small tan head. This is an IIPA? I tasted lots of dark fruit with roasted notes. An undertone was some spicy hops but they never asserted themselves. The alcohol remained hidden throughout. I liked it, whatever it was.
