Nothing spectacular about the appearance. A jet black color with modest head retention and lacing. Par for the course with most any dark beer for me (maybe my perception of color is bad).
The aroma was pronounced upon first sniff but after that initial blast of hops and some spice from the rye it was somewhat muted.
The taste and mouthfeel were fantastic. Roasted/black malts and rye make for an amazing mix of flavor with the west coast hops. The mouthfeel was silky/oily with relatively low carbonation without drifting into the realm of a cask ale.
Overall this was definitely worth trying even at 19 bucks for a bomber. I can definitely see why it's so highly regarded.
