Picked up a bomber from Total Wine in early June for $6.99. Release #9 was bottled 1-6-2014.

Beer poured cola brown with a nice off white head that is leaving some lacing behind.

Nose has hints of chocolate and citrus.

Taste is chocolate, pine, and citrus all working in a harmonious fashion. Hops and malts balance each other quite well.

Mouthfeel is smoother than expected for a hoppy brown.

Overall this is a delicious brew. Definitely try it if you come across it fresh - good luck with that as release 11 was bottled in early March.

Beer pours very dark brown, almost black in color. White head that turns into a nice foam rim around the glass. Some stickiness in the head.

Aroma is fairly simple, malt and pine. Despite its simplicity it has depth and is enjoyable.

Lots of roasted flavors, well balanced between malt hops. Crisp finish with a chocolate aftertaste.

Great body, well carbonated, full mouthfeel.

Too bitter for style, but I don't mind that one bit. This is a very enjoyable beer. I am very pleased with the selection. It would be great with meat on a cold night.
