look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

22oz bottle poured into Founders snifter.

A- Pours a dark completely opaque black with about a finger of slightly creamy/bubbly mocha brown beige head that has good retention and leaves nice lacing. Decent carbonation. Nice layered lacing.

S- Nice citrus hops of pine, grapefruit, orange, and lemon. A little bit of light chocolate and malts in the background, but definitely predominately citrus hops. Definitely above average aroma strength- smells great.

T- Nice citrus hops of grapefruit, pine, lemon, orange balanced with light creamy chocolate and some dark malts. Finishes a little bit bitter but not too bitter. Very nice citrus aftertaste. Pine taste definitely comes out a little bit more towards the end.

M- Lightly creamy, easy to drink, smooth, abv very well hidden, nice carbonation. Feels great.

O- This is definitely one of the best black ales I've ever had (2nd only to HF Jimmy). Nice citrusy aromas/tastes mixed with light chocolate and dark malts all balanced with a nice lightly creamy easy to drink mouthfeel. Definitely very fresh and I'm very glad we finally got this in. I definitely recommend picking this one up- it's a great beer for the price ($7/22oz bomber).
