12oz can pours with a dark mahogany colored body that supports a nice fairly tight mocha head that leaves behind some spotty lacing. Pretty good looking beer. The aroma offers up chocolate malts, dark roasted malts, a sliver of earthy ashy burnt malts and then light caramel malts blended into spicy rye bread almost mineral like sensation. The taste delivers a smooth supple mouth feel that ushers in dark roasted malts to almost ashy burnt maltiness. Just beyond that lies a pleasing chocolate malt note that takes the lead in the flavor to midway. Into the finish a modestly bitter mineral like and pine like hoppiness joins in to carve out more depth to the experience. This is pretty darn nice. A great rich roasty elixir. balloonbuffoon (392) - - JUL 24, 2017
12f;oz bottle, BBD: 04.13.2017, $1, pint glass. Emitted from the dark brown body topped by a brown sticky head is a vibrant sweet, forested pine aroma. This is a robust ale with a long lasting resin hop taste. It definitely does not finish with sweet malt as described. It’s okay, but is kinda like drinking rust, molasses, soy sauce, and pine. I cannot fathom having this again, unless I have a strong hankering for a black IPA. drowland (8829) - Georgia, USA - MAR 22, 2017
1/14/17. On tap at Craft on Draft. Rise & Pine... oh, a joke! I get jokes! Black pour with a small tan head. Light pine aroma, some citrus, mild coffee and caramel. Malty caramel and coffee on the flavor, some lingering pine, bitterness, and citrus. Not bad. wombat23 (1510) - Texas, USA - MAR 14, 2017

From a 12 oz. can. Pours a clear dark cola with a thick tan head. Aroma of toast and tobacco. Flavors of pine and cocoa. Bitter finish. Rich and tasty. The_Osprey (8211) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2017
January 2017 - Bottle share at One Canada Square. Thanks to Colin! As ’Uinta Rise & Pine’, 7.5%. Dark brown with a slight red hue, foamy brown head. Aroma is pine, fruity. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is fruit sugars, pine, earthy into the finish, maybe a bit salty. Decent. (3.5) kingaugusta (270) - Georgia, USA - FEB 16, 2017
Pours near black with a decent tan head. Nose is a combination of coffee and strongly floral hops. Flavor is like a combination of a big bodied Baltic porter and a potent west coast ipa. The pine leaning hops come out in force on the backside. Surprisingly smooth. Gription79 (2891) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - FEB 11, 2017
Poured from a 12 ounce can, thanks again to my sister for hooking me up with this one. Pours dark brown with a nose of pine, citrus, and notes of coffee. The flavor is similar with more coffee and chocolate flavors. 60minuteman (1746) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2017 Can from Naples TW. Drank right from the can. Evergreen trees, pine, juniper, wheat, dirt, roasted hop and malt. Pretty much a forest. Way earthy but it isn?t simply pine like many IPAs or too dirty like many earthy spiced beers. Flavor is more pine tree, pine sap, juniper, caramel, hop and wheat. This is a "me" type of beer. Love the earth/hop/spice balance.
