4.06/5 rDev +6.8%
A-black with a brown head that leaves a good lace
S-light roast with a hint of caramel malt and light hops
T-caramel malt and roasted taste mixed with a light hop taste that leaves you with the same aftertaste, yet it has a tad more hop bitterness
M-medium bodt and medium carbonation
O-has a great mix of hops and roasted malt that does not overpower you and leaves me wanting more

A: The beer is close to being jet black in color—when held up to a bright light, traces of reddish amber are noticeable along with a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high dense tan head that died down, leaving a large patch of bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of dark and roasted malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste mostly follows the smell and has additional hints of citrusy hops and a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels nearly medium-bodied on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation and a slight amount of crispness.
O: This beer drinks very easily although it seemed like it would have been better if the aromas and flavors were a little stronger.

Love this one! Pours a dark brown, almost black color with a fluffy tan head. Roasted malt with some chocolate and hop aromas. Roasted malt, chocolate, hop, caramel, citrus and pine flavors. Medium body with moderate carbonation and a slightly creamy mouthfeel. Roasted malt and lightly sweet hop finish. A very good beer.

Intense floral hop aroma. Pours black, almost entirely opaque, with a thin white head leaving behind a lot of lacing on the glass. Piney hops, malt character shows up more as it warms: roasty with some caramel notes. Finishes with a slightly bitter and very dry finish. The beer itself is very good and great to drink but doesn't stand out much in my neck of the woods where there are arguably too many IPAs (if such a state is possible).
