4.31/5  rDev +1.4%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a tulip glass.

It's certainly black. Can't see any light at all through it when holding it up to a bulb. Smells of sourdough and chestnuts. Sweet and malty on the fore with hints of currents and charred bread. Sweetness gives way to a perfect, relatively intense floral hoppiness. So smooth on the tongue that the 8.3% ABV doesn't even register.

One of the most well-balanced beers I've tasted. I'd recommend it to any IPA-guzzling hop-head as well as anyone who loves a good porter or doppelbock.

Great beer.
