This beer pours a deep woodsy red color that reminds me of tree resin. The head was light with tight small foam that exists now only as a ring at the edges. The carbonation seems to be struggling to reach the top of this thick ass beer. The smell is...grapefruit hops and pine resin and also an earthier smell... something like maple syrup or molasses as well.
Glug glug glug
The flavor is big big big on the hops, with a roasted and earthy malt underneath. The flavor has herbs, molasses, dark pitted fruits like cherries and perhaps a plum flavor....also a bit of something like dirt, which isn't bad but seems to come along the herbal flavor. The end has a bit of a boozy burn and the aftertaste has all the breadiness that malt comes with that's nearly impossible to taste anywhere but the aftertaste. The mouth feel is thick and heavy, a sipper for sure.
