3.6/5  rDev -4.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bottle from Boney.

Deep brown, light white head, some spots of lace on the glass. Smell is thick with cascades, lots of hop, pine and citrusy notes, roasted malt, some chocolate, biscuity with coffee grinds. Taste is roasted with coffee, bittersweet notes, hoppy, some pine, at points lightly astringent as well. Light-med carb, medium feel, mid weight. Not bad stuff overall, was bottled in March and i'm sure that when this is really fresh would make a difference, still drinkable though.

3.71/5  rDev -1.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured into an impy nonic a deep chesnut brown with russet hue,a nice looking half finger light tannish colored head atop.Aromas of dry earty hops and molasses,alot like a porter,faint piney notes as well.To me it's a big hopped up porter with it's dry earthiness and sweetish backbone,on top of the earthiness there is a hefty leafy hoppiness in the finish.I like this beer but it's a hoppy porter alot like alot of the style.Bottled in July 2013.
