(Served in a Nonic)
A- This beer pours a jet black body with microbubbles trailing up the sides and a sticky oatmeal colored head that last a bit.
S- This beer has a musty herbal hops aroma but it otherwise pretty clean
T- The slightly pungent dark woody hops mellows into a slight tart hint in the finish. There is a soft black malt bitterness that blends with some dandelion hop flavors in the finish.
M- the medium mouthfeel has a slight slippery texture in the finish.
O- The mellow flavor is more pungent that other hop flavors and the roasted black malt flavor grows as the beer opens. The tartness gets a bit stronger as it opens up aswell.

3.4/5 rDev -0.6%
Poured in to a tulip. Somewhat translucent black body with hints of ruby. 1/4 finger head that faded quick.
Aroma was a bit citrusy, floral and hints of roasted malt. Nothing too complex, pretty straight forward.
Taste was a bit on the roasty/chocolatey side. Mild malty flavors, a bit bready. Citrus and grapefruit hop flavors that turn to a mellow bitterness.
Mouthfeel was light body, medium carb and crisp finish.
Could use a bit more malt and hop flavors.

Poured this into a pint glass, and was not disappointed with the finger sized head, and was also impressed with the density of darkness in the body. This is a murky, intriguing and extremely dark brown brew with only a hint of ruby at the very bottom of the pint. Wussies need not apply .
The smell is all fruit, raisins, rich sweet caramel, and a touch of citrus hops.
The taste is all about roasted grains, a hint of fruit, then ending with an markedly satisfying bitterness, that I was not expecting given the nose didn't detect that much hop. Guess the nose does not always know.
The mouthfeel is near perfect.
Overall, this is a great brew that should fulfill any beer geeks fetish with dark hoppy brews.
