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

A: Poured into the Black Friday pint glass with some power behind it, the beer poured a big 3 finger tall head that sustained nicely. Tan to khaki in color the foam left spotty lacing on the edge as it fell. The beer is a dark, dark maroon when held to the light, it looks clear from what I can tell.

S: Big resinous, grapefruit and pine hop aroma sitting on top of a roasty malt aroma. Also getting mild coffee, anise and cinnamon? Sweeter smelling, no alcohol detected.

T: Roasty malts sit on top of a firm pine and citrus bitterness. Dark stone fruit flavors very up front, plums, prunes giving a bit of sweetness in the middle. As the darker roasty malts wear down the palette the bitterness and hop flavors are less noticable in the beginning and more so in the finish, which is pine and resien tasting. Finally the after taste comes through as a chocolate and caramel flavor.

M: A creamy mouthfeel with this one. Higher end of the scale carbonation and a big body. Also a touch of alcohol warming.

O: After Standing in line for an hour in 10F weather talking to fellow beer nerds it was easily worth the wait. A different beer then a big IBA overall complexity was nice and balanced. For a style that I've given more chances then I'd like to admit, I'd wait in line again for this one. Cheers Lake Front!
