A - Pours a beautiful dark brown with a tan head and nice lacing as you drink it down. Almost looks like a stout.
S - Dank herbs, pine, licorice and a touch of citrus and pineapple.
T - I was surprised that my initial taste impressions were chocolate and licorice, like a rich stout. But from there the palate is dominated by pine, bitter, dank marijuana and orange/citrus. A delicious, seductive melange of flavors. Semi-sweet chocolate and toffee notes continue to balance things out. There's a touch of Sambuca-like booze.
M - Medium-full body with a soft, velvety feel, but ample carbonation. Dry, pleasantly bitter finish, with faint lingering mocha.
Overall, this is one of only a few very successful marriages of an imperial stout malt bill with a big IPA hop profile. It's certainly reminiscent of good, sticky marijuana, and as one who has been known to indulge, this is an almost addictive brew.
