I've had this on tap before and it was THE BOMB. very good beer regardless of its style.

Pours a dark brown/black with a nice sized head that lasts a while. Some pretty big bubbles stay afloat along with nice lacing.

Smell is inviting as hell. Huge billowing hop essence with pine, grapefruit, orange, and roasted malt.

Taste is unique, more so than sublimely self righteous. First thing is a roasty quality like a stout, then a piney citric hop flavor that holds its own well through the taste. It's a combination of a dark ale and a double IPA in one. I love this beer its so in your face, yet also balanced as hell.

Feel is right spot on, just the right amount of bubbles with a slick feel to it that lends a nice flavor package.

This is a must try beer, I will be buying this more often now that I think of it.
