4.56/5 rDev +7.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Pours a black (surprise surprise) finger of deep tan head, nice lacing
Smell is, if you have had abrasive you know where the hop side of this is at, grapefruit, pine, orange, pineapple... Now the malt cocoa, coffee, black licorice, toffee, herbal note
Taste is heavy roasted malt, cocoa, pine, grapefruit, pineapple, kiwi, caramel, finishes with a bittering citrus
mouthfeel is nice and full, nice finish not to roasty or dry, great balance
Good beer, great cross between a Imperial Stout an a DIPA, one of the better ones I have had that is for sure.

4.1/5 rDev -3.1%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25
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!
