Pours a dark brown with a generous two inch beige head that morphs into eternal darkness in my chalice. Lacing is scant. Hop influenced head is very impressive.
Aroma not very profound. Tones of citrus and pine mainly.
Here's where the horses run otta the gate. Beautiful rye spice pronounced with a charred grain with some smoke. Citrus emerges with piney tars evident. Maybe it's just my mind but I'm also picking up on cocoa powder in the back.
Creamy mouthfeel and finishes with a snap-very crisp. Hops do linger throughout.
I've had this on and off in the past few years but lately been craving back for this. A spectacular all year round craft. I'm sure black ales are tough but this has been nailed. Really can't say enough fine things.
