Poured a pitch black with thick tan head and lace ring. Citric, almost grapelike hop aroma with some hints of roasted malt. Real smooth, easy to drink, caught me by surprise on that, not a hop bomb but the piney, citrusy even grapefruit hops reall kick in and are balanced by some roasted malts and a touch of sweetness that I can only describe as bitter chocolate. The malts lead to a pleasant dry finish, not overly crisp or bitter and this is a very quality sipper and great example of this style (as this style seems easy to botch, apparently).

Many thanks to SammyJaxxxx for this bottle. This is one of my favorite styles, and I have been wanting to try this for some time, so it was a great and unexpected extra.

Right off the bat, this is a beautiful beer. It's dark as night, and effortlessly produces a rich head that sticks around for a bit. Aromas are spot on for a CDA -- tropical fruit, pine, and tons of roast. It tastes every bit as great as it smells, and the bomber is gone before I know it. Another quality beer from FW.
