4/5 rDev +0.3%
On tap at the Plano Gingerman.
The beer pours a dark brown to black color with a large tan head that sticks around until the beer is finished. The aroma is very nice. I get a nice mix of lightly roasted malts along with some pine and light citrus from the hops. The aroma is very balanced.
The flavor is also very nice. I get quite a bit of caramel and roasted malt with some strong pine hop notes. The bitterness is about medium. The beer finishes very dry and is easy to drink.
Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Served on-tap at the Ginger Man in Fort Worth, TX. Beer was poured in a pint glass, and this brew pours like a stout. Jet black with a one inch, milk chocolate colored head that settles into a film. Good lacing on the glass as you drink. The nose is heavy in dark fruit sweetness, coffee, and a slight hoppiness. The smells are very sweet and rich. The beer has a hoppier taste then the smell previews. The beer is smooth bodied, with a dry crispness on the tail end. Hoppy dryness throughout. Roast and coffee highlights throughout with a hoppy and toasty aftertaste and slightly bitter finish. The beer gets heavier with the dark sweetness and bitterness as it warms. Delicious!

On tap at Queen Vic in Houston.
A: Pours a dark black color, almost opaque. A two finger tan head forms with good retention. Plenty of sticky lace.
S: Resiny hops up front. Soapy and oily. Herbal, grassy, and citrus aromas come out next. Dark fruits and a light sweet malt aroma lingers.
T: Follows the nose. Resiny, soapy, and oily. Citrus and grassy hops are dominate. After the hops fade this is really sweet. Finishes with a large grapefruit bitterness.
M/D: This has a medium to full body. Good carbonation. Though this is overly thick, syrupy, and oily. Not hard to drink a pint of, but a one and done for me.
For me, this is pretty typical of this "style." If this is your thing, than this is a good one. Though I don't really get it. A dark beer that is overly hoppy. Nothing special and a little over the top.

This appears a dark cola color with a thin layer of foam. It has a light hop aroma, present but not dominant, reminiscent of grapefruit citrus zest. There’s a big, upfront bitterness which comes off as a welcome surprise as well as an upfront roast which dies down into a long malt finish. The hops are grassy and grapefruity, and there’s enough dark roast notes as a contrast. Simply delicious.
