look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

22 Oz bottle poured into pint glass.

Appearance: Very dark brown with hints of dark red and a hint of orange.

Smell: Hop heavy, but not overpowering. Slightly earthy, pine, and caramel.

Taste: The hops want to be overpowering, but with the sweet malts it is extremely balanced.

Mouthfeel: A little too carbonated for my particular taste, but that's just me.

Overall: One of my favorite beers. For novice beer drinkers, it will be a little overpowering, but once you're palate starts evolving, you can't go wrong with it.
