---from can to pint glass---
Totally black – no light is allowed through, huge fluffy head – 2 fingers worth, lots of floating sediment, great head retention with great lacing… this beer is just about perfect. No, wait, it’s perfect.
Dark roasted malts and pine. Little chocolate aroma comes through
Dark chocolate and fresh coffee, piney aftertaste
Borders on heavy body, great lingering bitter chocolate, just sweet enough.
Whoa! I underestimated this beer! The hops and malt dance in perfect harmony here. Try this beer, please.

this is how i like my black ales. big, bold, and hopped to high heaven. the can pours a matte dark brown color with a robust inch of tan head and leaves glorious ring lacing as it drinks, never losing its layer of froth. the nose is bitter hops and darkly roasted barley, a double dose of bitter that transfers well to the taste. layers of chocolate malt weave with layers of piney hops, an enjoyable back and forth as i sip. clean finishing with just bitterness left behind. it drinks full bodied and smooth like a big american porter, and is carbonated just right for it to be both lively and smooth at the same time. a very enjoyable beverage, my first from indeed.

A- Deep brown, not quite black. Head is two fingers, cocoa color. Retention is decent, some lacing.
S- Smell is coffee, smoke, dark caramel. There is just a hint of pine hops here. Good balance, and well orchestrated.
T- More of the same here. Somewhat sweet for the style, but I like the flavors. Dark caramel, coffee, smoke, and a decent bit of pine hops. It leans malty and sweet but not overly so.
M- Medium body, maybe just a touch light for the style. Smooth carbonation, long finish.
O- A good beer. Well balanced and flavorful. Doesn't strike me as hoppy as some may be looking for in the style, but very good.
Serving type: on-tap
