Poured chilled into snifter glass. Bottled 6/6/14.

Appearance: licorice black. Light brown creamy head built up while pouring and dissipated only to the point of thick foam skimming the surface. Brown lacings remain around the glass.

Smell: dominantly pine with notes of citrus and brown sugar. Also some notes of chocolate milk shake going on here.

Taste: bitter from start to finish. A very woodsy/earthy flavor with a burnt sweetness at the finish. Picked up notes of molasses and tropical fruits. There is some malt but the hops really take over in this one.

Mouthfeel: very creamy and smooth - fantastic. Medium to full bodied. Quit a contrast from the appearance as it looked thin while pouring.

Overall: very enjoyable. Don't know how it taste fresh but I enjoyed it regardless. There really is no flaw in this. Especially did not expect this to have a nice creamy mouthfeel.
