I'm digging this new style as well as this brewer's series so was excited to try this one.
Excellent dark color-part of why I think I enjoy the style is because you don't usually expect something so dark to be hoppy. Nice tan head that held. Citrus and piney hop aroma-MMM!
Flavor is roasty and slightly sweet with a decent hop bite. Chocolate malt-bit of toffee.
Reminds of a porter in the after taste only hoppier of course. Mouthfeel is just OK-nothing too incredible but quite drinkable especially at the 6.5% abv.
I'll most likely buy at least one more of these while it's around but would go with a Stong Sublimely over this any day.

A: Black with a creamy lightish brown head.
S: Lots of floral and citric hops in the nose, and maybe just a touch of roasted malt, coffee, and dark chocolate.
T: Tons of pine and floral hops, yet not overly bitter, some citrus, some coffee and roasted malt. Hop heavy.
M: Smooth and full bodied, a bit creamy.
O: A great example of the style, and one of my favorites from Deschutes.
