look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Batch 221/222/223

Appearance: Out from the bottle, a hard pour releases an inch or so of foam that covers the cola colored liquid; not much staying power in the head and it swiftly fades to a ringlet/archipelago; plenty of splashy lacing, though

Smell: Mellowed toffee aroma mixed together piney hops

Taste: The toffee tones in the aroma jut forward but are quickly subsumed by the piney and spicy bitterness; between the pine and the spicy rye tones, the malt struggles to remain relevant though it does linger somewhat into the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with low to moderate carbonation

Overall: This beer may have a year of age, but the bitterness that is still around means this beer must have been hellaciously bitter in its youth; I just wish there was more malt to balance out the bitterness as it is a bit thin for the style
