look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12oz bottle poured into a nonic pint glass.

A: Muddy (har har har) brown, nice and murky. Humongous off-white head with very, very, very sticky head. Very delicious looking beer.

S: Smell is a bit muted. Earthy chocolate, toasted pine, muted lemon.

T: Bitter chocolate followed up by pine and tar. Very earthy. Very, very malty.

M: Sharp bitterness that feels just right. Consistency is somewhere between a malty IPA and a black IPA. Carbonation is medium.

O: Pretty impressed with this one. I'll be honest, I'm not a fan of Finest Kind, but this is something I see myself getting regularly. Very dark and earthy.

Appearance: Poured from bottle into snifter. Pours a a very rich, dark brown, almost impenetrable to light. Two finger, very foamy, off-white head.

Aroma: Lots of hops, primarily floral and slightly fruity, but also a very pleasant malty sweetness, almost reminiscent of a sweet stout. Intriguing.

Taste: Follows nose, big hop bitterness up front, blends nicely into smooth, sweet malt character.

Mouthfeel: Medium-towards-full bodied, relatively light carbonation.

Overall: Very nice, very interesting beer. Somewhere between a Black IPA, a sweet stout, and a brown ale, but excellent nonetheless.
