Maaaan, this is tasty. This is a glass of beer to pay attention to, right here.

Pours a very dark brown with a half-inch of tan foam which settles to a thin stripe, and the scent is definitely hop-forward. Slightly muted, not a bright sharp salad-bar tang of hops, but definite.

A disarmingly (for such a robust-looking brew) clean presentation at first, and then the roastiness and malt announce themselves like a warm towel slowly applied after a good shave, in the back of the throat and on the sides of the tongue. It finishes with a very interesting pine resin / grapefruit note, but the grapefruit thing is hard for me to work out; it's not the FLAVOR of grapefruit at all, the malty-bready-smoky atmosphere stays assuredly in place for a good while, but it's more that feeling you get on the top of the palate after drinking grapefruit juice.

This effect makes the smoky-malty flavor which stays hunkered down right there where you put it finish up with a nice, dry sharpness, rather than being thick and filling.

This is seriously delicious. Fantastic beer.

Poured on-tap and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a dark, brown to black coloring, with a thick, foamy, tan head. Nose of grapefruit, smoke, roasted coffee, pine resin, and subtle chocolate notes. Flavors are grapefruit forward, with a decent smoke overlay, subtle tropical fruit sweetness, and a bitter resinous hops highlight throughout. Smooth, light bodied, with a smoky, roasted, and extremely bitter aftertaste. The finish is dry, slightly frothy, with a resinous, bitter linger. Good beer.
