Black body, a couple fingers of tan foam that leave behind sheets of lacing all around the glass, and lasting surface coverage.

Aroma is roasty but mellow, fairly faint. Charred pine needles.

Taste is roasty and bitter with lingering piney hop character. Bitterness is the dominant character, after the initial black malt roastiness subsides. Medium bodied and slightly creamy with the aforementioned overbearing bitterness. Dry bitter aftertaste. Overall it was ok, but could use a little bit of nuance in the way of malt depth or hop flavors to balance.
