look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a La Chouffe tulip

A - deep dark brown/black, two and a half finger dark tan head and some nice lacing

S - Grapefruit, huge hop aroma, very nice toasted malt and grains, a bit of a sweet yeast note, some pine and just a nice nose

T - Very nice hop up front. Stout and dark lager like malts, chocolate, charred wood, toasted everything. Grapefruit all the way through. Has a bit of sweet on the front end and blasted away nicely by the hops and toastiness

M - Medium body, medium acidity, long finish and well balanced

D - Mellow but huge. Not you average dark lager or IPA, yet a lovely marriage. This drinks bigger than most dark lagers but on pace with great IPA's. I really like this one

Final thought - at almost 7% and only $4 something a bottle, this beer is great now and will be enjoyed as the fall begins
