this stuff pours black as night. i can't even see sunlight through the glass. the head is great and leaves elaborate lacing.
the smell is heavy with hops. juicy grapefruit comes to mind. there is a hint of rich chocolaty malt. most definitely pungent and strong hop domination here.
oh wow. i have to admit, the alcohol hits me in the mouth first, followed by a sweet, licorice-like malt and aggressive, juicy hops that also have an earthy note. roasted and coffee tastes are strong as well. it's rich, smooth, creamy while at the same time abundantly bitter and resinous with hops.
mouthfeel slightly creamy, perfectly carbonated, and a little dry at the end.
i believe this was a very fresh bottle. i don't have the words to properly describe this beer experience. it's fucking amazing.
