look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Pours very dark ruby brown, with a nice thick two finger tan head; outstanding retention and some of the best lacing I have seen.

S - Pine, and a little bit of malt, cherries, and a cluster of dark fruits; not as much booze as I expected.

T - Much like the smell starts off with nice pine hop bitterness then moves onto the malt, really balanced finishes with a slight bitter aftertaste that dissipates which is pleasant.

M - Medium-high bodied with just the right carbonation good mouthfeel.
