Black with a semi creamy/big bubbly head. Foam disappears quickly and leaves a ring around the glass. Aroma is mostly sticky pine and some subtle amounts of heavily roasted chocolate. Almost like a sugar-free liquor because of the high abv. Flavors pop with a big carbonation tingle as soon as it hits your tongue. Mostly cascade at the start and then some light semi-sweet chocolate comes forward. Thin malt bill it seems and only one type of hop characteristic. Ok at first, pretty average flavors but then man does it get intense. In a bad way. So much bitterness and astringency. Too much hop bitterness of sticky pine resin and another layer of overwhelming black patent bite. It just clings to your tongue and sticks to the back of your throat. I could only get through 1/4 of this beer. One thing on the positive side is the 10% abv isn't too noticeable. Maybe with a year this might get better but I'm not optimistic.
