Poured into a snifter glass. The beer pours dark brown out of the bottle and collects as an opaque, black liquid in the glass with a quickly dissipating light tan head. The beer smells of dark roasted malt, hazelnut, and some citrus hop notes. I get some coffee in the nose as well. The pine and citrus hop flavors hit the mouth along with that hazelnut and coffee. There's a nice roasted malt backbone. Those coffee and nut notes go with the hop flavors very well. The body is medium with moderate carbonation. The finish is a little dry and there's a lingering roasty aftertaste. The alcohol provides a nice warming feel even though it does not come out in the flavor. This is a very good beer.
