A very dark pour, stops short of porter/stout territory. Nice pour, dense head, some sticky lcing. The nose is first and foremost roasted malt, with piney hops. The flavor is malt-forward, rich and a bit sweet. The balance is good, a little rough on the backside but that's a minor quibble. Purchased as a bomber at Hopworks in Vancouver.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
Enjoyed farther north in Cascadia, in Vancouver, BC.

A: Cola black, almost impenetrable to light, a little bit reddish (like black cherry) when held to light, but mostly just black. A couple fingers of head about the colour of chocolate milk.

S: A bit piney, dark bread, no citrus or floral notes.

T: I might be crazy, but there's something about this beer that reminds me of sausages. I wouldn't really say it's smokey, but there's some sort of charred/grilled flavour going on here. Bitter and a bit piney, but not without dark malt flavours. This beer has a taste unlike any I've ever tried, and it's certainly not awful, but it's not really to my liking, either. It's the char/smoke flavour I'm not crazy about.
