Enjoyed farther north in Cascadia, in Vancouver, BC.

A: Cola black, almost impenetrable to light, a little bit reddish (like black cherry) when held to light, but mostly just black. A couple fingers of head about the colour of chocolate milk.

S: A bit piney, dark bread, no citrus or floral notes.

T: I might be crazy, but there's something about this beer that reminds me of sausages. I wouldn't really say it's smokey, but there's some sort of charred/grilled flavour going on here. Bitter and a bit piney, but not without dark malt flavours. This beer has a taste unlike any I've ever tried, and it's certainly not awful, but it's not really to my liking, either. It's the char/smoke flavour I'm not crazy about.

Pours black with a large tan head.
Lots of roasty malt as a flavour along with menthol, pine and smoke. Interesting.
Flavours include coffee grounds, roasted malt, caramel, piny hops, spicy notes. Finishes with a bold bitterness with both piny and roasty components.
Carbonation is just a little high.
