One of the best beers I've ever had. It is very dark and pours with a dark brown head that lingers. The high alcohol is compensated by the large hoppy and strong malty flavors. The beer also has subtle citrus and roasty undertones. Slightly less carbonated then a typical beer but allows for a smoother mouth-feel.
