4.25/5  rDev +7.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Mostly clear mahogony body with a really nice, big khaki head with tight bubbles that retains really well. Fantastic sticky lacing on the glass.

S - I love Munich malts, especially dark ones, and that's what I'm getting in the nose. Biscuity, bread crusty, malts with some spicy alcohol and even a bit of chocolate powder. Dark fruits come through as it warms like raisins and plums. Nice piney hop smell throughout with a touch of citrus.

T&M - The taste follows the smell well. First taste is big and prominent piney hops. Citric notes follow and then the malts really come into play. I really get dark Munich malts in the taste with that bread crust and toasted biscuit flavor. Touch of chocolate in the aftertaste. The hops and the malts really play well together, balancing each other out. As the beer warms a bit the alcohol becomes a bit more prominent and adds a nice spicy element. The mouthfeel is slick at first but the alocohol adds a drying effect once swallowed.

D - This is a great beer. Reminds me of an IPA and more specifically Hop Devil but with darker, more prominent malts. Until I saw the classification on this site, I thought this WAS an IPA. Drinks really well and balanced, but watch that ABV.
