a deep amber almost brown pour with 2 fingers of off white head which dissipated slowly and caused lots of god lacing. lots of hoppy aroma. pine, caramel, more pine, fresh cut grass, and more pine. sweet cocoa-like malt profile with tons of hop flavor. grapefruit and pine like in an ipa, lots of caramel and slightly roasted chocolate flavors like a darker ale. medium body with a creamy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. wonderfully balanced and tasty making this a diesel amber ale. just realized this is a 7.2% beer, so i guess it did a good job masking the alcohol!

Pours a really dark mahogany color with a bubbly cappuccino like head that's at least as tall as the body of the beer. Wonderful.

Smells of roasted malt, unsweetened cocoa, bitter hops, dark citrus...pretty even balance of hops and dark malt, pretty close to a black ale on the nose but somewhat less sweet and roasty.

Tastes pretty similar. Pine and citrus up front, fades into roasty malt and cocoa. Very good.

Very well carbonated, very full mouthfeel.

Great beer, way better than the Nugget Nectar I had right before it.
