Imbibed at Market Beer Co. on 6/25/13.
Pours black, amber around the edges with a dark tan head that dissipates to a thin layer. Laces great. Resinous, dank, and piny describe the initial aroma, with grapefruit, cream, chocolate, baking bread, and toast accompanying. Flavor is intense and bitter to start. Resin an bark followed by dark malt chocolate, roast, cereal, then the heat from the alcohol sets in and the intense bitterness washes over. It's almost too abrasive. The feel is balanced with a dry finish.
Love the beer, but if they scaled back the bitterness it would be superb. As it is, this is great beer with a small flaw to my palate.
Serving type: on-tap
