Poured into a pint glass. Body is black with a 1-finger tan colored head that leaves behind some decent lacing.

S: Roasty malts with some coffee coming thru along with sharp piney hops.

T: Interesting mix of flavors - coffee, some chocolate malt, earthy hops and piney hops, with a touch of rye spice. I like. Lingering piney bitterness comes across at the finish with a dry after taste.

M: Medium body on the tongue and mouth. Carbonation is moderate, with a good overall mouthfeel.

O: I liked it.
