A: beautiful jet black color.. 2 fingers of khaki head. Looks amazing.

S: resinous hops!! Grapefruit as well.. a little bit of burnt malts with a nice sweetness deep in there..

T: smoothness upfront.. then the hops come in. Big resin hops again. Back of the palate gets hits with a charcoal like taste and some subtle sweetness.some small booze az well. leaves a lingering char, resinous, & slightly boozed finish.

Mf: smooth full bodied brew. Minimal alcohol heat.

O: very nicely done.. hop heads won't be disapointed

A: stout? Nope - but pitch black, head thins - the appearance creates an expectation

S: smells crisper than it looks; you can detect the hops, some char, and only a subtle sweetness

T: sharp, crisp, hops - more clarity than sweetness - tastes different than it looks

M: it is light, almost (gasp!) refreshing, with more carbonation than it's appearance might lead you to believe

O: a great beer. I enjoy strong sweet stouts and sharp crisp Belgian-esque pales, and this beer hovers tentatively between the two styles.
