drank 9-27-14
A: Murky Dark looks like maybe an Old Ale in the glass not much head retention on it.

S: Very Resinous on the nose some malts coming through maybe a little caramel on the end

T: A huge piney resinous bomb but nicely balanced with a sweet finish it starts like its going to be all bitter but finishes sweet very easy drinking for almost 10%.

M: Slightly thick on the tongue with a lingering bitterness

O: Enjoyed it immensely, it made you want to keep going back after the first sip I really enjoy a DIPA that has a not too bitter finish. This beer will please hop heads.

Bomber into a pint glass.

A: Pours dark and cloudy, almost amber. Off-white head quickly dissipates. Minimal splotchy lacing.

S: Mostly pine, and not very strong.

T: Hops early and late. Piney dryness has some staying power. Grapefruit also noticeable late.

M: Slightly heavy but not sticky. Light carbonation.

O: The biggest hop bomb of all Nashville-area beers. More dark and heavy than west coast versions of this style, and English in appearance and smell. The hops are there, though, and the bitterness keeps the 9.8% ABV well hidden. Not at all sessionable, but worth trying, especially for hops enthusiasts.
