look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: It has a nice dark brown color to it. It has a nice creamy beige head that dies down slowly and leaves beautiful lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of roasted malts, some coffee, bitter pine resins, some caramel, floral hops and light citrus.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some roasted malts, light coffee, some toasty/caramelly notes, bitter pine resins, light floral hops and faint citrus.

Mouthfeel: It has a low carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by good flavors and aromas. I'm not a huge fan of the style to begin with but I must say that this one is quite enjoyable.

Serving type: bottle

Pours a pitch black color that's actually a little thinner looking than I am used to. It has a big 3 finger brown head that lingers for a bit before lacing the hell out of my snifter. First smell is fairly hoppy. PIne notes mostly. There are some muted roasty notes in the background. It's pretty muted. First sip is quite similar to the nose. Piney hops. Roasted malt. Some subtle coffee notes in the background. A little char bitterness finished the brew off. There is a pretty clean finish with a low bitterness. It's very drinkable and the alcohol is hidden well. Not one I'd seek out again but that's moreso the fact I don't love the style.
