look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A - Black body with dark brown edges. 2 fingers of dark khaki foam on top.

S - Roasted malts, pungent green hops, pine needles, hints of coffee.

T - Follows the nose with roasted barley, bittering green hops upfront, pine resin, notes of coffee, the roasted malts provide some sweetness but there is a dryness spicyness that keeps it in check. Finishes dry and bitter.

M - Medium full mouthfeel, creamy carbonation, dry finish.

The roast is not heavy and the hops are the main focus. Good mouthfeel with some spicy character. Good stuff.



Serving type: on-tap
