A - jet black. Head quickly dissipated with little lacing.

S - big hop character up front, with a little mellow malt and citrus

T - mellows out to a porter-type taste - roasted coffee, burnt chocolate, citrus hops. leaves a nice bitterness with chocolate and hops

M - very drinkable; not too thick

O - can't have too many, but one of the best offerings from Big Boss

Pours into a standard pint glass a deep chocolate brown with a half finger pillow-like light beige head atop,a nice layer of froth is left after it settles.Cocoa,caramel,and piney hops in the nose but the hops are on the lighter side.Molasses,roast, and bitter chocolate flavors hit up front with earthy and piney hops in the finish,the molasses flavor stands out up against the hops.To me it's a big earthy, hoppy porter but that's not a bad thing.Not bad.

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is jet black, with some sediment throughout. Thin, sparse, off-white head that starts around a half inch and settles into an uneven surface coat. Aromas of chocolate forward, with a solid roast character and some mild hops bitterness. Flavors are roast and char forward, with a campfire feel. Subtle bitterness in the backbone, with a pepper spicing and pine pitch profile. Very smoked, but with enough resiny bitterness to balance well. Smooth, mid-bodied, transitioning into a slightly filmy, slightly bitter finish. Smoky, bitter aftertaste lingers on for a bit. Dynamic and layered brew.

12 ounce bottle -> World Market tulip glass

A - Pours up a beautiful black with a nice one finger fluffy khaki head. Retention is good and lacing is even better. It is a beautiful beer.

S - I picked up notes of coffee, roasted nuts, and bread.

T - The initial taste is a malt profile loaded with roasty nut flavor. The finish is a mild bitter, kind of a smoky taste with some coffee.

M - very pleasant. Maybe sort of thin, but the aftertaste is actually kind of pleasant.

O - I thought this actually tasted more like a porter, but whatever it is pretty yummy and easy to drink. A nice offering from a relatively obscure North Carolina brewery.
