12 oz bottle/bottled 7/31/14. 8.3% ABV.
a - black/opaque
s - floral hops, slight spice(rye)
t - hops up front, rye and roasted malt dance together perfectly in the mouth.
m - slightly creamy, medium bodied.
o - what great balance achieved with such an ambitious recipe. the rye pairs so well with the roasted malt. the hops work just enough. this is probably one of my favorite beers.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: Poured into a nonic pint glass. Dark brown with little light making it through. Pours with a massive 4 finger head. The head took up half of the glass. The bubbles are off white and homogenous in size.

S: Powerful dark fruits and hops. Earthy and pungent.

T: I am getting grapes and plums. Hints of bitter coffee. There is a "tartness" due to the bitter finish - but it is not unpleasant.

M: Smooth start - with the right amount of carbonation. Dry finish - but doesn't detract from the overall mouth feel.

O: I wouldn't turn this down - but I am not sure I will seek it out again. It is a nice brew but if I am getting something in this style I prefer Southern Tier Iniquity.
