22 oz bomber. The beer is very dark, with just a small hint of light around the edge coming through as a deep deep ruby. A finger of solid milky tan head sits over top and there is a moderate carbonation working up the sides of my glass. I really like the compactness of the foam on this one. The aroma is solid ashy roast with a prevalent oat character with an undertone of solid pine and chocolate, with some fruity esters playing in there as well. It feels just a tad light to me, as I was expecting more force in the smell. The flavor is interesting. I get a strong pine hop and alcohol infusion that blends into a creamy oat that goes to a deep roast that gives ash impressions. It crescendos again with pine hop and a strong but pleasing bitterness. The flavor is bold, with a good bit of complexity. No flavor sticks around too long. I would like to see the alcohol flavors blend better, but I think some time will help that out. Mouthfeel is very thick and a bit slick. This one is distinctly drying to the sides of my tongue. Carbonation is very fine and bubbles are small. This is an enjoyable brew. The alcohol character seems to be settling in a bit as it warms. I think the pine hop is a little strong overall, but again, this would settle in as it ages. I think this one will only get better with age.
