3.53/5 rDev -10.9%
Had on tap at the tasting room at Binny's South Loop Chicago. Served into a pint glass.
Appearance: 1/2 head, chestnut brown in color, clear, low carbonation
Smell: citrus hops dominate with some toasted malt
Taste: much like the taste citrus hops dominate, there is some dark chocolate and a significant leather taste
Mouthfeel: light body, moderate carbonation, bitter with a touch of sweetness
Overall: If you like Troeg's Dead Reckoning, you should love this. The beers are similar, good not great browns that are hop heavy. The hops and the leathery elements work well together. I would get this again, but one pint is enough per sitting.

3.58/5 rDev -9.6%
Draft at Cigar City during Humahpu Day 2012.
Pours a dark chocolate brown color with amber/hazelnut hues and a half finger beige head that quickly settles into a lasting ring. Sporadic spots of lacing left behind.
Sweet, slightly roasted aroma with chocolate and caramel malt notes along with subtle lactic cream and earthy hops. Hints of toffee, hazelnut and toast followed by a resinous, grassy pine character.
Medium bodied with a strong hop presence up front that provides a dry bitterness that dominates the flavor. Dry grassy pine needle flavor is very prominent, overpowering most of the malt notes. The hops are slowly countered by sweet and roasted dark malts. It tastes more like an India brown ale with subtle notes of toffee, chocolate, caramel and nut. Pretty good but too hoppy for the style in my opinion.

On tap at RJ Grunts. Clear dark brown. Minimal light tan head leaves lots of sheeting on the side of the glass. Aroma is all malt with notes of caramel, lightly roasted malts, and toasty nuts. Flavor is similar with a very nutty taste. Piney hops with a biting bitterness. Mild alcoholic burn on the finish seems out of place for a beer with this ABV. Medium bodied, moderate bitterness. Overall, an enjoyable beer that went nicely with a burger.
