look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Black with a slight hint of dark brown around the edge. A good hearty light brown head that lingers and leaves sticky lace tracing down the glass.

S - Pine, alcohol, bit of yeasty funkiness, some green apple, slight spice, ginger, lemon zest, grapefruit, slight phenolic, like a fresh band-aid, almost woody, smoky character as well, the malts are somewhere hidden beneath all of that

T - Buttery rich bitter malts give way to bubblegum and a slightly zesty grape-like flavor. The bitter really kicks in towards the back end and leaves the palatte contemplating fruity esters complemented by piney notes that leave a bit of curiosity. Certainly pine, grapefruit, cherries, roasted, smoky malts, a high alcohol with some stickiness, and an almost cooling finish.

M - Awfully thick and coating, with tremendous carbonation and a bitter that shows up but doesn't dominate.

O - Not bad. I wish the malts came through a little more and the flavors don't hold up very well in the finish, but a grew brew for sure.
