A - Gorgeous head, creates an inch or more of pillowy white head with great lacing and retention. Opaque black body.

S - Grapefruit hops dominate the nose, with some roasted malts coming through. A porter on steroids is definitely a good way to summarize the aroma.

T - Roasted malts and coffee, with a strong bittering hop edge to the finish. Great balance between the two, really a treat.

M - Smooth and creamy with a medium amount of carbonation. Medium-bodied.

O - Had this a few times and it's been consistently solid. Great balance between the hop profile and the malts.

22oz bottle into pint glass. Pours an almost pitch black color with amber/brown hues at the edge of the glass. Creamy light almond colored one finger head.

Nose is slightly smokey with heavy roasty notes. Cocoa, oak, and vanilla are present.

Taste is very savory. Barely any hop presence, but a very intense and interesting flavor profile that includes smokiness, cocoa/roasted malt bitterness, and a slight green hop bitterness.

Moderate carbonation with a lingering cocoa and roasted malt bitterness. Overall a very intense and interesting beer with lots of depth. Would drink again.
