chocolate punch with tropical notes and pine. IPA meets Stout. A very big coffee aroma, but not much in the taste initially. It lingers after. A slight grape flavor profile.

Another good brew from this growing brewery. A nice new beer to the rotation.

Appearance: Black, decent foam, great lacing.

Smell: Pine, with a faint hint of pine in the background.

Taste: Pine, chocolate, coffee, and pine, with touches of pine.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a pine hop aftertaste.

The Verdict: Delicious. Enough roasted malts to give it a hint of balance, but pine is definitely the star of this show. Lots of fresh flavor in this one.

Pours black with a two finger mocha white head. The nose is primarily pine with a little citrus. There is a nice roastiness from the malt and a hint of chocolate. The flavor is all pine and roast. It's like biting a burnt pine cone. I feel like this bottle might be a little old because i remember a bit bigger of a hop presence. Still quite good.
