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.

A: dark, roasted malt with nice head and lacing
S: malty, toffee yumminess. maybe my nose out of whack but i dont get the hop profile.
T: very tasty malt, sugar, and rye. The back end is too sweet imho. Still a work of art.
M: great feel on this one; consistent with FW offerings.
O: A great palate awakening. Somtehing to enjoy to break the hop monotony. FW still one of my fav breweries. Their brewery tour is fun too
