Great beer! Started this snowy night with a taste of this thick, dark IPA. Sweet, but not too sweet. Smooth, but just enough flavor. Nice aroma. Looks good enough to drink poured in a clear pint glass. Overall, I would easily recommend this beer to others and drink it again.

Poured from bottle dated 12/09/14 into a modified tulip glass.
A - Deep dark, crisp carbonation capped with mocha colored foamy goodness.
Laced glass the entire time.
S - That roast malt and hops dance a beautiful dance. Hints of cocoa and chocolate are
blended with citrus notes.
T - Complimentary flavors well blended, with oily hops leading and the malt base floating them the entire way. Cocoa notes combine with resin to keep it interesting.
F - Slick, and firm in the palate with some lingering, the carbonation is well done.
Exits with a fine hop notes.
O - A fine treat from Otter Creek. Quite enjoyable.
Cheers
