Doing a side by side with Blakkr made @ Surly

Appearance - very bland compared to the Surly version. dark black, but not much head or lacing at all.

Smell - I get a lot more malts out of this compared to the surly, but nothing over the top

Taste - A lot more sweet and malt on this one

Mouth - ends quite dry.

Overall - I really liked the Surly one better

A nice, big, creamy solid brown head settles and holds at one finger's height without moving. It rests there on top of a brew that's black as the darkest night. Little to no highlights show when held up directly to the light. The lacing clings strongly, the tattered sheet breaking after reaching the glass's halfway point, from which it continues with pretty strong patching and thick spotting down to the bottom.
Give the aroma some time to develop its complexities or it'll be a pretty one-dimensional balance of roast and pine, but instantly it hits the nostrils hard; the strength of this beer could be intimidating. There's citrus there as well, maybe some smoky cocoa in with the malts.
It really develops on the tongue, and the flavor just about explodes. It has the same combination of huge roast and massive hops but with a sweetness just getting in and easing the onslaught of hops bitterness. Cocoa, maybe a bit of tropical fruits, and something just a little creamy offer superb balance for such a hoppy beast. The roast gives up notes of charcoal briquettes on the finish.
Crispness nips on the tongue, but softly. The medium body finds the right median for the style. A drying aspect to the roast comes into the middle and finishes out. Overall, it's pretty smooth as well.
