A- Black body with a reddish hue. Dark brown sticky head. Immediately started leaving a lacing.
A- Roasty caramel malt with a herbally hop aroma. Slight hints of juniper that became more pronounced as the beer warmed.
T- Huge bitter taste right off the bat, combination of dark malts and hops. Spicy feeling right when it hits the tongue, followed by an alcohol taste.
M- Creamy, but crisp medium body with moderate to high biting carbonation.
D- Quite enjoyable. I could see this being great for a cool fall evening.

On tap at Toronado in San Diego, CA.
Pours an almost opaque super dark brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, citrus zest, and slight juniper berry. Taste is much the same with a cocoa flavor on the finish. There is a medium amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is interesting but isn't as juniper forward as I was expecting.
