12oz can poured into a Perfect Pint.

A - kind of a murky sludgy brown. Light tan billowy head with very good lacing. Lighter highlights around the edges.

N - super resiny.

T - much maltier than the smell... roastier. Obvious pinkeye's hops too. Little bit of citrus.

M - cold... it was in the fridge.

D - not the best one ive had but its a pretty good beer.

Serving type: can

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

12 oz can, enjoy by 7/17/14 poured into an IPA glass.

A - Deep mahogany and crystal clear body with a pinky sized beige head, OK lacing.

S - Burnt charcoal, tree bark and pine needles.

T - Roast and pine bitterness. Accelerated astringency with little to no balancing sweetness.

M - Dry, lingering burnt finish.

O - I don't like this style of beer in most situations, this brew is no exception. I feel that it brings out the least pleasant characteristics of stouts and IPAs without show casing either's redeeming qualities.

Serving type: growler
