look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a pint. Enjoyed while visiting folks in SD for Christmas 2011
A: Clear, very dark brown liquid. Light tan, thick and creamy head has great head retention.
S: Sublime. Layers of tropical fruit and pine. Dank weed aroma. Just shy (thankfully) of soapy.
T: Much roastier than the aroma. Bitter nonetheless, but not much hop flavor. A lot of piney notes actually though. Very dark chocolate, similar to a RIS but without the alcohol. So fresh and so clean.
M: Fairly dry and bitter. Strongly bitter, in fact maybe a tad over the top.
O: Quite nice. Hoppiness is almost too much surprisingly. I'd buy again and seek out. I'd have another.

Enjoyed on tap at World of Beer, in a snifter.

Deep black, impenetrable by light. About an inch of tan foam hangs out for a long while, leaving behind sticky walls of lace.

Dank. Fresh-cut grass, resin, grapefruit. Very sticky, the extra hops kind of overpower the roast. Still , there's a hint of campfire smoke and dark chocolate.

More balance in the flavor, though the hops are still huge. Big grapefruit, dank weed, smoke. A smoother, sweeter, roasty chocolate finish.

Velvet-smooth medium body, with moderate prickly carbonation. Holds together well as it moves. No alcohol. 4.5

Delicious. Not very different from the original, just a touch stickier and more dank.

Served on tap in a sample glass.

Appearance: Dark almost black color, with a beige head. Looked a lot like a stout.

Smell: Citrus and hops.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth, but thick, medium to full bodied. Taste of malts and hops.

Overall: Good brew, my eyes wanted me to taste a stout not an ale on this one, so the flavor surprised my palate.
