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.
