A: Pours a brown color with a 2 finger chocolate head that dissipates slowly leaving some nice lacing.
S: Very nice hoppy smell. Light on the malts.
T: Again, a lot of hops. Slight sweetness on the back end. Very bitter.
M: Sticky and bitter. Really fills up the palate.
O: I'm not a big fan of the sweet profile in a hop forward beer, but a good offering.

4.1/5 rDev -3.1%

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!
