look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A - Pours black, voluminous brown head that has decent retention and good lacing down the glass.

S - Pine hops, roasted coffee, touch of booze.

T - Bold roasted malt, a touch of dark chocolate, finishes with an assertive pine hop finish with an alcoholic bite. Notes of roasted coffee linger through the aftertaste.

M - Full body, low carbonation, smooth across the palate, finishes clean with a nice touch of warming booze.

D - Bold, assertive RIS that's well balanced and drinks nicely. Especially good considering the price and availability.
