12 ounce bottle -> tulip glass

A - deep brown almost black with a foamy one finger head, a small retention ring, and lots of lacing. Very beautiful pour.

S - Not as much on the nose as I expected. I get some coffee, chocolate, and pine.

T - nice malty backbone (notes of raisins and molasses) with a bitter coffee (almost burnt) finish.

M - kind of thin for the style, but pleasing nonetheless.

O - my first offering from this brewery. Not too shabby!!!

Pretty darn good brew. Poured a bit cold with a small to medium size, thick, slightly creamy, tan head that soon settled to a light cover and good lacing. Color is a clear, very dark, blackish amber brown. Aroma is dark roast malt, molasses, dates, prunes, hint of hop. Flavor's like nose, fairly dry, tang and bitter are predominant, suggestion of bitter chocolate, and none of that is overdone. Body and carbonation are very good although the bitter/tang strength lends to some sharpness. Finish is like flavor, of average length, suggestion of alcohol warmth. Very drinkable.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a black color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of roasted malts, a bit of sweetness. Taste is well balanced malts and hops, some bitterness, a bit of smoke. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.

Alright, this 24 oz bottle was picked up for eight bucks being a fan of ipas

The pour was amazing. The head kept rising. Amazing, the head was just like ocean foam that slowly faded.

Appearance is dark brown with bold bubbly lacing

Now by far the best part was the fruity american fresh as can be hops. This stuff smells amazing

The mouthfeel is smooth and rich, full

The taste, the taste is different, very hoppy. Not that bitter, but enough bitermess. Very litle carbonation, the some malts, quite strong stay on the tongue. I was expecting a better tatse from all that smell.

Overall not dissapointed, a great brew
