Another new brew for me don't mind these guys but usually only see the small bottles and even though its not barrel aged ill take it and pours a solid dark brown with the creamiest three finger head that settles in for the long haul and ain't going nowhere with off white lacing everywhere this beautiful looking head touches on looks it looks very approachable,the smell is strong piney hops and I mean strong they really dominate with an underlining of black peppercorns,sour lollies and passionfruit,the mouthfeel is just under full bodied,moderately carbonated and addictive with a beautiful harmony of those strong piney hops encountered on smell layered with a sweet molasses maltiness,sherbet and finished with a calming passionfruit bittersweetness and when I say calming it just really levels out the bitterness you anticipate on finish from this hop bomb and overall what a treat such a nice balance not seen enough these days and just reminds me of how tasty this style can be also great endorsement for the dark side as I know ill be back cheers.

This beer tastes nothing how it looks. It pours a solid black, just like a stout. The smell was one of the best for me personally. The fruit notes were strong with this one. The taste was hard to wrap my mind around. I was searching for the rye, but couldn't find it with the first few sips. A few more sips brought out the rye, as the beer warmed up a bit. I got a nice smokey feel to this beer. Overall another great beer from Firestone.

The citrus dies down, and more of the roasted caramel, with rye shine through.
