Pours really hazy dark murky burnt orange. Head is thin, about half a finger but retains very nicely.

Smell is pretty good. Tons of caramel malt, maybe some rye. Pretty malt forward with a fair amount of earthy herbal hops upfront and well.

Taste is better then the nose. Loads of sticky semi sweet caramel malt forward along with and almost dry citrusy hop flavor before the deep piney herbal and earthy hop oils and resin set in. Bitterness is relatively mild.

Mouthfeel is great. Tons of sticky malt gives this a moderate body. With all the hoppy oils and resin it gives this a much bigger body. Moderate carbonation cuts through it nicely and leaves it drinkable.

Fantastic on tap at the brewery versus bottled. Happy that Solemn Oath is putting out this part of the Vikings series. Bottled version lacked the same bouquet and depth of flavor as the kegged set. Possible that the SOB team is still getting a handle on the bottling process.
