look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Bottle opened on 4.12.13

A - Pours a super dark brown with a smaller dark tan fine head with good retention.

S - Strong hoppy pine, subtle citrus and very subtle roasted malts.

T - Roasted malts with a strong pine finish.

D - Good carbontaion with a medium body.

O - I know we created this styly in the NW, but I still don't love it. Solid attempt.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Not quite black. Thick off white head. Retains for a long time. Nice lacing.

Smell - Grassy hop. Roasty. Smells nice.

Taste - Way downhill here. Hoppy, but thin, bitter, and grainy. Roastiness very strong, but really intense in every disappointing flavor.

Mouthfeel - Bitter and thin. Well carbonated.

Overall - A second disappointing beer from Lawson's on the night. What the hell.
