Beautiful offwhite head that just doesn't come off the glass or dry out.
Smells moderately of herbs, smoke, and flora.
Has a strong taste of burnt tobacco and the blackest of coffee which is quickly masked by the aftertaste.
Extremely bitter aftertaste that stays with you for a long time. The after taste is harsh like eating a lime peel.
I don't think I could have more than one of these in a night unless I felt particularly aggressive.
Serving type: on-tap

12oz bottle from a sample pack, poured into a pint glass. Enjoy by 9/5/14
Pours a deep reddish copper with a large slightly off white head. Decent carbonation, thick lacing.
Getting a very malty aroma
As the bottle states, this is an aggressive tasting beer, a bit boozy at times. Malts and hops battle it out, hops winning early on, before roasted malts pack a punch at the end. Lots of carbonation & bitterness on the tongue, and the heavily roasted malts in the back of the mouth.
Overall, it's good, but personally, I much prefer the oak aged version.
