A: Dark cola color with a little bit of transparency. Head is medium sized with a solid creaminess to it, an attractive pizza dough color.
S: Sprucy hops, licorice, caramel, black patent malt and some vinous qualities.
T: Starts with an interesting maltiness that walks the line between caramel and roasted barley at the tip of the tongue. Sprucy hops cruise in and flow from the front to the back of the tongue. Almost chocolaty but not totally, perhaps its the hops and malt that are reminding me of Andes candies. Definite coffee ground bitterness comes in after the swallow, as does some redwood abrasiveness. Finishes with tremendous balance of dark malts, bitter roasted barley and vibrant hops. Interesting beer.
M: Medium body, straight forward mouthfeel.
D: Im not sure how I feel about these hoppy dark beers. Tasty but they arent one of my favorite styles not yet at least. Regardless, this is a delicious beer with fantastic balance.
