Pours clear brown/red with purple highlights. A large yellow tan head head forms and leaves some chunky lacing behind.
Smell is citrusy and pungent, as it warms roasted malts join the party.
Taste is nicely bitter with some piney hops up front. Caramel malty flavors in the middle, and a boozy bitter finish and aftertaste.
Texture is slightly viscous. It is also smooth and almost creamy. A great beer to drink, but not too many as the boozy aspect will not only kill your brain cells, but also overpower your palate.
I liked this beer, I will be picking some up to age, even though I liked the hop foreword aspect.
