Pours viscous thick black in color with a good 2 finger head that has good retention.
Smell is a nice mix of hop and malt forward. Hops come slightly first and more potent. Big herbal hop aroma covers a milder fruity hop aroma. Malt has notes of char and some lighter chocolate and coffee.
Taste follows the nose. Big herbal hops hit the palate first with a mild bitterness that is followed by a big charred slightly smokey malt flavor and bitterness. Finish is intensely bitter, maybe a little to much for my liking.
Mouthfeel is good. Super thick body is cut with mild carbonation. Lots of sticky hop oils and resin along with an aggressive bitterness.

Pitch black body allows no light to pass through. A thick, light brown head with great retention and lacing.
This is a potent black ale, and I love it! More pine and tropical fruit than any other beer I've had to date. Very fresh aroma - clean and earthy. A hint of roasted malt and cola.
This hop forward beer packs a punch. Plenty of earthy pine notes and some and a bit of grapefruit and tangerine. A malty backbone, rich with bittersweet cocoa and roasted coffee. Has an interesting sweet flavor on the finish and it clashes a bit with the booziness of this brew. However, it's still highly enjoyable.
Quite thick for the style and lightly carbonated. Dry finish.
A fantastic brew that is best enjoyed one slow sip at a time. The explosive flavor of this one will catch you off guard if you don't prepare yourself. Worth every penny!
