From a can, pours a dark mahogany brown with a full light brown head sitting on top.

The smell is very roasty, lots of toasted oats, resin hops. This smells like a dry Irish stout. The flavor is roasted barley, piney hops, bitter chocolate, clean dry finish. I really like this interpretation of the style. Not too hoppy, balanced with the roast of a porter and a creamy mouthfeel like an Irish dry stout.

Pours dark black with a one finger dark tan head. The aroma has cocoa, roasted malt, and some earthiness.

Tastes mostly bitter. There is grapefruit peeling, dark roasted malt, and cocoa. The taste might be a little too bitter for me. Needs more sweetness for balance.

Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Has a somewhat bitter aftertaste. Not a bad beer.
