Sampled last night on 12/18/13. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a brandy snifter.

Pouts a dark reddish-brown in color with a small off-white head. Some lacing was seen when sipped. The aroma is of strong roasted malts. The taste was..well very bitter with a harsh strong 'hoppy' aftertaste which lingered for way to long. Tried it again a few minutes later and wasn't any better at all. After two more sips, I had had enough as it was way to hoppy of a harsh bitter aftertaste for me and poured the rest out.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: reddish-brown with a lumpy off-white head that dissipates to a thin layer after a few minutes. Decent lacing.

Aroms: some citrusy hops present.

Taste: decent hop bitterness with citrus notes, as well as roasty and caramel notes from the malt.

Mouthfeel: smooth with moderate carbonation.

Overall: decently balanced. Fairly quaffable and enjoyable without being amazing.
