The beer comes in a mahogany color with amber on the edges in the light.

The aroma has huge dank pine, herbs. It then has some caramel, hint of dark fruit, and slightly sweet.

The flavor has a round caramel malt, but it attacks you with a huge amount of pine, herbal, grass, and resinous hop bitterness. The body is medium.

I definitely prefer the Oaked version of the beer because the characteristics match so well with the oak. However, this is still quite good. This beer really does attack you with hops and bitterness. Not recommended for not those into bitter beers.
