Poured refrigerated from a bomber bottle into a snifter.

Appears black with golden brown at the edges. Possesses a large and tenacious coffee-colored head.

Initially smells like an IPA, but with further inspection, other smells some forth, such as those of of coffee, caramel, hops, fruits, and big malt.

Tastes of roasted coffee and smoked wood. Some hop bitterness, but not nearly as much as in an IPA. Very pleasant after-dinner drink.

medium to full-bodied, low to medium carbonation, reminiscent of a stout.

Overall, an excellent change up from an IPA. Dark and roasted, would go great with BBQ or steak.

A housewarming gift from Duffextracold.

Dark brown cola colored pour that sits opaque black in my glass. Tight khaki head. Sticky lacing leaves little waves stuck to my glass.

Dark, dank citrus hard candy. Lots of pineapple. Pumpernickel bread crust and maybe I'm getting anis?

Hops aplenty. Grapefruit, grapefruit and more grapefruit. Medium but chewy mouthfeel. A tad alcoholic but I'm a pretty big sissy about that. Roast malt is evident and supportive while not taking anything away from the graprefuity goodness. Which is as it should be IMO.

One of my least favorite styles but this was so well done that I loved it. Good pick Mr. Extracold.
