Pours with a huge coffee-colored head of tiny bubbles that slowly settles leaving decent lacing. Pitch black and no light makes it through. Big and hoppy smell of pine and sap. The taste is roasty and coffee-filled with chocolate that finishes sweet with hints of chocolate powder and piney hops. Medium body and medium carbonation make it relatively light on the palate. Nice and smooth and highly drinkable, if a bit pricey.
