This beer is very, very dark. There's not much light getting through this one - I guess you could say it's black. It's so dark it looks like a porter! It has a nice, fluffy tan head with excellent lacing that clings like crazy. It's hard to decipher the nose. I don't seem to detect much. All I get is a tiny bit of nuttiness and some floral notes from the hops. It's very faint.
Nice complex flavor here and a creamy mouth feel. I was surprised to get a sharp spiciness almost immediately. Then the bitter flavors recede a bit and the taste becomes toasty and nutty. As it slides across your palate, the hops start to kick in again for a nice, dry finish.
This excellent beer will appeal to hop-heads (like me) as well as those who like big, complex flavors. Although I prefer the standard IPAs to this variety, I still found this beer to be quite tasty. I would NOT suggest this beer to someone new to craft brews.

A - Creamy tan head and beautiful dark dark red body.
S - Sweet roasted malts with some hops
T - Um.. yum! Sweet malt and roasted caramel underneath with a bevy of hop and citrus IPA characteristics.
M - Smooth upfront and carbonated later with a bit Alcohol at the end.
O - Really enjoyable and not everyday flavour. Down to have one of these whenever the opportunity presents itself.
