The "piney" metaphor that people use for some hops becomes reality here, but without the hoppy bitterness.

It pours dark (of course) from 32-oz growler, with two-finger head that dissipates at a moderate pace. Smells of mint and roasted malts. The flavor reveals a woody backbone to a much weaker mint than the nose (it's that spruce in the description -- definitely not peppermint!), balanced by dry, somewhat milky chocolate. Medium mouthfeel. Not an overly sweet or alcoholic beer by any means, and not a hoppy one either, despite the clear piney note pawing at the relatively rich porter base.

This is really inventive stuff that seems to play on a common hop description -- which may surprise/turn off drinkers hoping for "piney hops" instead of actual pine! I loved it, though. On tap at Jacob's Pickles, NYC.
