Bottle into DFH snifter.
Really glad this made it to Buffalo.

A- Exceptionally dark brown pour, bordering black. Two finger soapy off white head that quickly drops to a thin cap. Lacing is remarkable.

S- Hop bitterness is a wonderful mash of pine and citrus. The rye adds a super spiciness that I've become increasingly drawn towards. There is a touch of dark roasted coffee and a bit of char in the mix.

T- A huge wave of everything comes at you all at once. Spice from the rye and floral bitterness, dark malts and coffee roast than finishing with a citrus hop bitterness. Slightly dry finish.

M- Thin bodied, good carbonation, slightly chewy.

O- Very good, the bitterness is there but I've had much more potent ABA's. The rye adds a lot of character which is always a plus.
