look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

22oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a fluffy light tan head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is roasted chocolate malts, resiny hops and some spicy rye.

The flavor is roasted dark malts with a weird blend of rye and charred plasticky resiny bitterness. The bitterness is fairly harsh and lingering in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, I really wanted to like this beer, but it just did not mesh at all. It did mellow a bit as I drank it, but still was overly abrasive and unbalanced with off-notes
