Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tall pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a dark blackish brown with some hints of amber. Lots of bubbles and a huge four finger off white head which slowly fades into a thinner creamy layer. Leaves a lot of creamy lacing.

Smell: An earthy, roasty, and fairly juicy balanced mix of hops and dark malts. Earthy and floral hops with hints of grass and spicy pine resin. Subtle citrus hop hints of orange, lemon, and grapefruit. Dark roasted malts with good hints of chocolate, coffee, toast, caramel, biscuit, grains, and yeast. A pretty solid balanced aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a sweet, earthy, and roasty balance of dark malt and hop esters. Upfront mix of earthy and floral hops with notes of wet grass and pine resin. Citrus hop esters of orange, grapefruit, and lemon. Sweet dark roasted malt with notes of dark chocolate, coffee, toasted bread, caramel, biscuit, grains, and yeast. Nice balance of bitterness and sweetness.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a fairly high level of carbonation. Creamy, silky, smooth, and fairly drying on the finish.

Overall: A solid dark brew. Sort of like a hopped up cream stout. Nice balance.

Solid black with a short and dense head of light khaki foam. Nice crystally lacing left on the glass.

Great nose of citrusy hops, fruitiness, roasted malt and chocolate. Great for the style.

Wonderful mix of hops and malt. Hops offer up very fruity citrus, but minimal bitterness. The bitterness comes from the roasty and toasty malts that give off flavors of coffee bean and dark chocolate. Long flavorful finish to this one.

Weakest part of this beer. The carbonation is pleasant, but the body just feels too thin overall.

This is a solid take on the style. It meets both the hops and roast for the style. The hops are great all around and the roast has it's own highlight reel. This one just needs some more body to be outstanding overall.
