Had SSR in a bottle but never on tap. Welll not anymore boys and girls because on Dec. 22 2012 at T J Smiths, during my annual christmas shopping I ran across this very ale.
And I'm happy to say it was good.
My compliments to Tj for his clean tap lines also.
Pours a handsome combination of deepest brown with a tall, dense , moussey yet fluffy mocha head. he glass was literally coated with sticky lacing.
Aroma was fantastic of piney hops sweet burnt caramel malts.
Taste was suberbin this perfectly balanced ale. Tons of oily piney citrus hops with a good deal of malts, eve so slightly roasted adding yet another layer of taste to this wonderful ale.
The feel on the palette was full bodied dry and bitter add two shakes of ashen grit and you got it.
A wonderful beer to drink smooth depth of flavor handsome complexion a true work of art and the grandest scale.
Serving type: on-tap

4.46/5 rDev +5.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
Served from 22 oz. bottle into tulip glass.
A - Body is a rich, rosewood-color, with a foamy ivory head forming on top.
S - Pine resin, grapefruit, and hemp dominate. Some hints of mint and smoke.
T - A resin bomb for sure. Sticky hop flavors including pine, hemp, and grapefruit bombard the palate. The malt have tones of raisins and toast. The finish is all piney bitterness and a whiff of smoke.
M - The hop oils almost give the beer a bit of a sticky mouthfeel. The body is a bit hefty and the carbonation is fairly mild.
O - Very good black IPA. A lot more dank, piney flavors than most in the style, but the high ABV and smokey malt flavors make it work.
