A- Pours a dark ruby brown with a light beige head. The head is semi-soapy and recedes into a thin head after a minute. Some sparse lacing is present.
S- Molasses, cocoa, pine resin, good dose of hops. Nice
T- Starts out with a toasty molasses but quickly transitions into citrus fest. Big lemon is present with some pine and grapefruit. The finish is very citrus forward, almost acidic on the palette, but not too cloying.
M- Medium carbonation here with a light bodied feel which is surprising given the 6.9% ABV. I wouldn't have guessed.
O- Definitely an interesting beer. It seems to bridge the gap between IPA and Black Ale quite well.
