Draught @ Headkeeper: This one pours a pretty much opaque dark brown color. There was about a finger of a tan head that lingers and leaves some lacing. The aroma was not quite as strong as i thought it would be. Some pine and earthy hops and chocolate are predominant. The taste is very good. Big malt body. Just a hint of sweetness up front. Not too bitter. Hints of chocolate, pine, nuttiness, perhaps some fruits.
