look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Bottled: 10/30/13
Appearance: Aggro pour from 22oz bomber into 16oz snifter yields a two finger café latte head that dissipates slowly into a thin layer. Thick and heavy lacing with nearly opaque, deep black cherry color and legs like a speed skater.

Aroma:Hops, spices, dark chocolate, coffee and mild caramel

Flavor: Dark chocolate, coffee, slight pine, rye spiciness, some biscuit? Very slight alcohol warming with medium bittering and slight astringency at the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with dry/ bitter finish. Low active carbonation, very slight alcohol warming in the back. Slight astringency.

Opinion: I really like this beer. It’s very complex yet moderately session-able in spite of the fact of the 8.5 % ABV. I’m currently cellaring one and will probably do more.

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

Poured dark brown-copper-black with thick tan head that retains. and leaves nice lacing.

Nice citrus hops with pine. Rye malt, roast.

Taste: Nice rye crispness with a roasty back bone. Lots of bitter, resiny hops that stay in throat.

Mouth: Dry and astringent. A stout-like slickness.

Overall: Nice beer with good balance and complexity. Its a bit astringent and has more roast than I like for style.
